Enhanced Oil/Natural Gas Recovery

Pushing Carbon Dioxide Miscible Fronts

Enhanced recovery projects have grown in importance as world energy prices have risen and new production technologies have been developed. Air Products’ industrial gases are being used to significantly increase recoverable hydrocarbon reserves which results in increased revenues for oil and gas producers. Our Enhanced Recovery technology spans the production of high-purity nitrogen for applications such as pressure maintenance, miscible displacements and recovery of natural gas liquids (NGL). Nitrogen rejection plants have further utility in Btu upgrading for sales gas. Air Products has successfully supplied multiple nitrogen injection and nitrogen rejection projects and continues to be at the forefront of developing enhanced recovery techniques involving non-hydrocarbon gases.
