IEP principals have played a key role in the implementation and operation of some of the largest miscible CO₂ projects in the Permian Basin. Our previous experience in the development of large miscible CO₂ gas injection projects can be applied to clean hydrogen and gas storage projects.  IEP engineers will use numerical simulation and phase behavior studies to maximize CO₂ injectivity, determine well spacing and more accurately determine the size of major CO₂ recycling facilities. There are a number of Miocene reservoirs in the Gulf Coast that can be used for storage or can recover a large percentage of the remaining OIP.  IEP’s principal developed and implemented the first offshore CO₂ injection project at Quarantine Bay, Louisiana. CO₂ was liquified, and shipped to an offshore platform where it was reinjected. This type of production technology was innovative at the time. Application of some of the same design considerations for CO₂ recycling facilities are being used in modern LNG facilities. The principals of IEP worked on the initial design and later-stage development of the largest CO₂ injection project at SACROC.  In the Denver Wasson Unit, Niraj helped Shell Western E&P develop a transition zone pilot study. In the transition zone study, CO₂ was injected below the oil/water contact, and saturation changes were monitored through advanced reservoir surveillance tools.  IEP has been directly involved with the development and implementation of the following CO₂ projects:

  • Slaughter

  • Means San Andres Unit

  • McElroy Unit

  • Wasson Field (Multiple Units)

  • Mabee Field

  • Wellmen Unit

  • Yates Field
