GENERAL MEETING: NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY
Dr. Tour will present work performed at Rice University toward developing new technologies that will enhance oil and gas recovery. His presentation will include several new technologies that can be used in drilling and production operations.
The use of graphene filtration agents in drilling fluids will be discussed. This involves the addition of modified graphene oxides, which are robust 1-nanometer-thick sheets of carbon and oxygen that are 50-100 microns in diameter.
Also, the use of sub-100-nanometer-sized carbon-based nanoreporter sensors will be presented. These can delineate the constitution of the downhole environment, thus indicating the percent oil versus water in the porous rock.
Finally, a mesoporous CO2 capture media will be presented that can efficiently remove CO2 from natural gas streams at room temperature. And the CO2 can be effectively removed though a 75°C thermal cycling process.
