Carbon Accounting for Carbon Dioxide Enhanced Oil recovery
Stewart, Jamie R
Haszeldine, R Stuart
It is recognised from currently operating CO2EOR projects that the operations and processes involved in CO2EOR are energy intensive and may compromise the overall carbon footprint of a project (ARI, 2009; Dilmore, 2010). This study intends to provide a medium to high level life cycle assessment of CO2EOR operations for a theoretical offshore North Sea project. The study will focus on upstream operations involved in the CO2 EOR process and aims to quantify all significant processes and activities that contribute to a projects carbon footprint. An attempt will also be made to incorporate the impact of new infrastructure on the carbon inventory of the project.

Impact of land-use change for lignocellulosic biomass crop production on soil organic carbon stocks in Britain McClean, Gary James (The University of Edinburgh, 2016-06-27)The contribution of energy from biomass sources is projected to increase in Britain to assist in meeting renewable energy targets and reducing anthropogenic CO2 emissions. With increasing concerns over the sustainability ...
Assessing the photoreactivity of peatland derived carbon in aquatic systems Pickard, Amy Elizabeth (The University of Edinburgh, 2017-07-03)Northern peatlands are a globally important soil carbon (C) store, and aquatic systems draining peatland catchments receive a high loading of dissolved and particulate forms of C from the surrounding terrestrial environment. ...
Changes in carbon and nitrogen dynamics in Sphagnum capillifolium under enhanced nitrogen deposition Kivimäki, Sanna Katariina (The University of Edinburgh, 2011-11-24)Peatland ecosystems only cover 2-3 % of the Earth‟s surface but they represent significant carbon stores, holding approximately one third of the global soil carbon (C). The major peat forming genera Sphagnum appears to be ...
