The Wyoming Gas Injection Initiative RFP application period begins Thursday, June 15, 2023 and closes at 11:59 PM MST, September 29, 2023
The Wyoming Gas Injection Initiative (WGII) has been approved to receive $22 MM of matching funds from the State of Wyoming (State) to implement, in close collaboration with Oil and Gas Operators (Operator/s), multiple Field Pilot Projects in the State of Wyoming. The initiative involves field pilot testing of advanced enhanced oil recovery technologies such as foam-assisted gas injection using recovered hydrocarbon gases, carbon dioxide, or other gases for revitalization of oil fields and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions by operations in the State. It also includes laboratory-scale de-risking of the recovery schemes (both research and technical services using site-specific rock and fluid samples at relevant field implementation conditions) at the world-leading Center of Innovation for Flow through Porous Media (COIFPM) of the University of Wyoming (University), in close collaboration with the Dow Chemical Company.
