DNV GL suggest new EOR concept: wind powered water injection

DNV GL is proposing a new concept that combines mature water injection technology with the newest developments in offshore wind power to achieve more cost effective Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). Now, industries are invited to join DNV GL in developing this concept further in a joint industry project. Initial studies show it will reduce the cost of water injection, avoid costly topside modifications and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

DNV GL studies suggest there are opportunities for a new generation of autonomous injection systems used to increase the reservoir pressure. There are clear indications that such a wind-powered water injection system could reduce both CAPEX and OPEX and drive innovation of new technology. It could be installed without costly retro-fittings on the platform, provide access to systems normally located subsea, increase the flexibility of injection location and reduce the installation time. The system would also be possible easy to move and use at new locations after the closure of a well or field.
