5 years of applied research have been conducted to date with a team of mixed academic and commercial experts. This has resulted in the Geo-Engine; a machine optimised to generate energy from a previously wasted geothermal resource. Our research and designs represent a way to help clean up hydrocarbon production.
Acid/Sour gas is the most abundant chemical energy resource on the planet, making up 60% of all known conventional natural gas reserves. Contaminated gas like this will dominate all future gas discoveries and developments. However, this gas is heavily contaminated with variable amounts of highly acidic CO2 and H2S which have to be removed. The production of contaminated gases is often associated with high pressures and temperatures.
Despite these challenges, it is still a commercially attractive resource. Geo-Engine is an integrated, portable, electricity generation sled that can be fitted at the wellhead to produce geothermal power from the raw uncleaned gas flow.
NetZero energy produced by Geo-Engines can be used to sequester CO2, power the cleaning plant and compress the cleaned gas for LNG transportation, if required.
The world’s carbon budget is finite and running out fast; we need a rapid transition to net zero. BP
Today, natural gas – the cleanest-burning hydrocarbon – makes up more than half of our production. We believe it will be vital to building a sustainable energy future, especially in power generation, where it produces around half the CO2 and just one-tenth the air pollutants that coal does. Shell
Chevron has a long history of investing in ever-cleaner energy through our internal research and collaboration with governments, businesses and universities. Today, we aim to find more reliable, affordable and lower-carbon solutions that scale. Chevron
