Please direct all inquiries on the content of the solicitation to the point of contact identified in the solicitation and on this cover page. There are five separate Areas of Interest and various Technical Topics within Areas of Interest to which an application can be submitted under this Announcement. This cover page contains information and allows for submission of an application for Technical Topic 2B: Gas Flooding ONLY. DE-PS26-05NT15600-2B Technical Topic 2B: Gas Flooding The recovery efficiency using carbon dioxide in oil reservoirs is low. The recovery from these floods may be from 10-20% of the oil-in-place. Also, the carbon dioxide utilization rate, the amount of carbon dioxide injected to recover a barrel of oil, is high. This utilization rate is usually expressed in thousands of standard cubic feet of carbon dioxide per barrel of oil (MCF/BBL). These utilization rates vary between 3-12 MCF/BBL with about 7 MCF/BBL being typical. A significant amount of the low recovery efficiency and the high carbon dioxide utilization rate can be attributed to the high mobility, i.e., low viscosity, of the carbon dioxide that affects the sweep efficiency. Also, the need to maintain the reservoir pressure above the carbon dioxide minimum miscibility pressure (MMP) places severe constraints on applying carbon dioxide flooding to shallow reservoirs. These barriers must be overcome for gas flooding, especially miscible carbon dioxide flooding, to reach full implementation potential. One of the major challenges to improving the oil recovery from gas flooding is to reduce the amount of oil bypassed due to the poor sweep of carbon dioxide, N2 or flue gas. Past work on mobility control for carbon dioxide flooding using foams, polymers and direct thickeners has shown promise, but has not yielded a widely accepted method. The improvement in sweep for gas floods remains a major challenge. The application needs to have an initial research Phase (1) and a demonstration Phase (2) with a practical field test for the verification and validation of the results of the research work.
