General Mtg: CO2 Tertiary Recovery – What We Have Learned Over the Past 40 Years of CO2 Injection into the Permian Basin



 


 


 


 


     DAVID MERCHANT is President of Merchant Consulting, a company specializing in CO2 tertiary oil recovery, reservoir modeling, and basin study analysis to determine the next generation of CO2 floods.


 


He started his career 36 years ago (1976) with Amoco Production Co. evaluating projects in the Gulf of Mexico, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, and the Permian Basin of Texas. In 1994 he joined Pennzoil doing the same type of work.


 


In 1998, he formed Merchant Consulting. For the past 14 years, his company has provided basin study analyses (dot-to-dot) across the United States, scoping model predictions for the next generation of CO2floods, and reservoir simulation analyses targeting both conventional and un-conventional CO2 recovery techniques.  His clientele ranges from major oil companies (BP Alternative Energy, BP, Shell, Marathon, and Maersk, etc.), to smaller independent companies (Union Royalty, POGO, and Pure Resources, etc.).


 


With over 26 years of CO2 experience specializing in tertiary oil recovery, CO2 sequestration, reservoir modeling, and basin study analysis, his plans are to pursue EOR and CO2sequestration projects across the globe in areas of the world that have EOR potential, but lack the CO2 to make the projects work.


      



 


 

 

Full Description
 
For the past 40 years, enhanced oil recovery projects using carbon dioxide (CO2) evolved from a partially understood process filled with uncertainties to a process based on proven technology and experience. Unfortunately, that expertise is used by a limited number of companies that actually know how to design, implement, and manage a CO2 enhanced oil recovery flood.
 
In addition to presenting the history of CO2flooding in the Permian Basin, this presentation will summarize what we have learned, what impact CO2flooding has on oil production in the United States, and how it can fill the energy gap that exists in the 21stCentury.
