Addressing a meeting on oil and energy in Tehran, Zanganeh said Iran's enriched gas
production capacity stands at 835 million cubic meters a day and it will reach about 900 mcm by March 20, 2017, and beyond 1,000 mcm a day by the next four years.
A parametric study on hydrogen enriched gas
production, via steam gasification, in the presence of CaO, was performed by Inayat et al.
Enhanced oil recovery pioneered on Alaska's North Slope includes miscible injectant, an enriched gas
that scrubs more oil out of the reservoir.
Further studies and screening will be done on more exotic processes, such as miscible flooding (CO2) or enriched gas
Nozari said that Iran`s enriched gas
including gas condensates, liquefied gases and naphtha has increased to 422,000 barrels per day.
This slightly enriched gas
is then fed into another centrifuge, where it is enriched more.
An additional subsea pipeline will transport the enriched gas
from the Sullom Voe Terminal to the Magnus Platform where it will be injected into the oil-bearing rock using wells especially designed for gas injection, which will increase the amount of oil recovered.
According to the researchers, the data suggest that this enriched gas
has slowly expanded into and mixed with cooler gas that was already there.
South Pars Phase 12 Development Project is planned to produce 75 million cubic meters of enriched gas
for delivery to the national grid.
Some of this gas is recycled material that is continually being replenished by star formation and the explosive energy of novae and supernovae, which kicks chemically enriched gas
back into the halo.
