Masdar, an initiative by the Abu Dhabi Government to promote advanced energy and sustainability, has launched a feasibility study for CCS for enhanced oil recovery in Abu Dhabi. The multi-billion dollar CCS program is the largest of its kind in the world and the first to be undertaken at a national level.
The study, which will be completed by the end of the year, is the first step in a strategic initiative by the Government of Abu Dhabi to develop a country-wide CCS network.
The main objective of the study is to evaluate and rank options for onshore and offshore CO2 capture from industrial facilities in Abu Dhabi, and the delivery of the CO2 to oil field operators for enhanced oil recovery.

In addition, the study will identify the first project to be implemented as part of the network, provide a roadmap to develop the network and potentially link it with similar schemes across the region.
