Enhanced Oil & Gas Recovery Methods

Trusted Supplier of Expertise, Gas & Equipment for EOR/EGR

“Enhanced oil and gas recovery involves injecting gases such as nitrogen at high pressure into reservoirs. This increases the reservoir pressure and can significantly boost production and recovery rates”
Proven Expertise to Enhance Tertiary Recovery

At Linde, we have many years of experience in gas-enabled Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) / Enhanced Gas Recovery (EGR). We have provided turnkey installations across the globe, including the second largest nitrogen plant in the world for Pemex in Mexico. We have the tools and expertise to work directly with you to assess your field and determine the suitability of nitrogen (N2) or carbon dioxide (CO2) injection. We can help you optimize the tertiary recovery of your reserves.

Low Input for High Output

We can help you get the most out of your oil and gas fields through gas injection. We will work with you to design, build and operate a world-class on-site air separation plant to provide you with reliable, low-cost nitrogen - exactly where you need it. We have demonstrated this value in Hawkins, Texas, where we supply ExxonMobil with more than 3,000 tons of N2 per day, and in Samaria, Mexico, where we supply Pemex with 6,680 tons of N2 per day. Cost-effective, versatile and field-proven, our N2 supply and injection systems are the preferred choice to help you increase extraction for enhanced oil recovery.

EOR Pilot and Injectivity Tests

We also offer N2 and CO2 service solutions for EOR pilot and reservoir injectivity tests - the outcome of which will help to determine how well your reservoir will respond to EOR. Furthermore, we have the gas supply and technical expertise to help design the tests, field operations and equipment needed for the best achievable outcomes.
