Special Issue "CO2 EOR and CO2 Storage in Oil Reservoirs"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
This special issue documents a rapidly developing cluster of mitigation technologies and protocols to reduce atmospheric release of CO2 from point sources, known as Carbon Capture Use and Storage (CCUS). We summarize and link results from the recent developments in CO2 use for Enhanced Oil Recovery (CO2-EOR) and associated long-term geologic storage. We will explore the developing policy and technical progress to link greenhouse gas management rules and incentives to EOR projects, provide case studies of example applications, and evaluate prospects for technology expansion. Frameworks for accounting for injected CO2, recycled gases, and energy use (lifecycle issues), monitoring to document that isolation from the atmosphere is effective, and new evaluations of optimization of EOR to improve project economics and open new CCUS opportunities will be the special issue contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
