Project Description: 

This is an integrated commercial-scale project, located in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, which is capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the flue gas of an Emirates Steel production facility and injecting the COfor enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s nearby oil fields. The main objectives of the project are to reduce the carbon footprint of the United Arab Emirates, implement EOR in subsurface oil reservoirs, and free up natural gas that would have been used for oil field pressure maintenance. The Al Reyadah Project includes capture, transport, and injection of up to 800,000 tonnes per year of CO(processed at the required specifications and pressure) and is part of an overall master plan which could also create a COnetwork and hub for managing future COsupply and injection requirements in the United Arab Emirates.

Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at the 2017 Mid-Year Meeting in May 2017.
