JOGMEC announces the publication of the first version of “CO2-EOR Guidelines” for implementing CO2-EOR to contribute to climate change mitigation

June 23, 2023

Japan Organization for Metals and Energy Security (JOGMEC) has developed and published the “JOGMEC’s guideline for safe, long-term containment of CO2 using CO2-EOR (JOGMEC CO2-EOR Guideline).” It will apply its knowledge and experiences in developing natural resources and strengthen its support for CO2-EOR projects in which Japanese companies participate.
JOGMEC has been developing carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) and carbon intensity (CI) guidelines to establish institutional infrastructure aimed at energy security and climate change mitigation. It considers CO2-EOR (CO2-enhanced oil recovery), a technology to increase crude oil production by injecting CO2 into underground reservoirs, as an important method to accomplish energy transition; moreover, JOGMEC has established guidelines aimed to provide recommended work guidelines (guidelines) for the appropriate implementation of CO2-EOR, which can contribute to climate change mitigation.

Further, the established guideline is expected to be referenced and used by domestic and international operators and all stakeholders involved in CO2-EOR projects to reduce carbon emissions from energy fuels through safe, long-term storage of CO2. This guideline will also assist in understanding the procedures for planning and implementing CO2-EOR projects that contribute to greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions, along with the recommended operational guidelines for calculating GHG emission reductions.

JOGMEC continues to use its experience in developing natural resources and, as a core organization for CCS, will strengthen its support for CCS projects promoted by Japanese companies.
