Nobel Prize Winner Professor Malcolm Wilson Published Paper in Petroleum

Published 28 April, 2017

Volume 3, Issue 1 of Petroleum, with the topic of “Special issue on, Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS): Technological developments and future opportunities for petroleum industry”, has been published online and in-printed. We extend special thanks to Prof. Malcolm Wilson and his team. Prof. Wilson was a Member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) team awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, and is currently a member of the International Advisory Board, Energy Academy of Europe. The group reports on “The IEAGHG Weyburn-Midale CO2 Monitoring and Storage and EOR Project”, and provides interesting insights on this important research project, which has contributed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions by storing more than 25 million tons of anthropogenic CO2 and is considered the world's largest CCUS project presently in operation.

Dr Paitoon (PT) Tontiwachwuthikul, honorary Editor-in-Chief of Petroleum, fellow of Canadian Academy of Engineering, co-founder of Clean Energy Technologies Research Institute (CETRi), is the Chief Editor for the CCUS special issue. Dr Fanhua (Bill) Zeng, editorial board member of Petroleum, program chair of Petroleum Systems Engineering, University of Regina, Canada, and Dr Christine W. Chan, Canada Research Chair Tier I in Energy Informatics, founder of Energy Informatics Laboratory, University of Regina, Canada, are the Co-Editors for this special issue.

The contents of this special issue cover many significant issues related to the original theory and applications of CCUS technologies, including new CO2 capture technologies, CO2 storage and EOR applications, as well as new methods for CO2 utilizations and CO2 monitoring. The diverse research efforts were conducted in 12 countries from around the world, including Canada, Australia, the United States, Germany, France, China, Turkey, Thailand, Qatar, Iran, Algeria and Malaysia. We hope that this special issue will be a valuable source of information for engineers, scientists, and decision makers working in the academia, industry, and government. We also hope that the special issue will be a useful resource for the next generation of young researchers working in this important research area.

We hope you enjoy reading this special issue on CCUS, and look forward to learning about your research results in the area of CCUS in the coming issues of Petroleum.
