The Government of the UAE aspires to reduce green gas emission by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from industrial emitters and transporting the CO2 to oilfields for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR).

In order to demonstrate and test this concept, Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO) recently implemented a pilot-scale CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery in one of its onshore oil fields. This is the first ever CO2-EOR flood to be implemented in the Middle East.

This paper gives the background to this unique project and describes the pilot facilities and project execution plan.
