The objective of the project is to investigate/demonstrate the feasibility of utilising produced CO2 for re-injection in a geothermal field to provide the geothermal energy sector with the means to address the climate change challenge through CO2 utilisation/storage.

This project addressed the efficiency of Foam-Assisted Chemical EOR. The question that was addressed in this project is whether we can improve the efficiency of surfactant flooding by using foam as a mobility drive.
