The objectives of this Funding Opportunity Announcement are to solicit and competitively seek research applications to accelerate the development and application of technologies for enhancing the recovery of petroleum from both onshore conventional and unconventional reservoirs through the injection of chemical, miscible, or thermal fluids. It should be noted that applications for developing and testing technologies, methods and practices for enhancing oil recovery over and above current productions from unconventional reservoirs that do not involve the injection of enhanced oil recovery fluids (e.g. improving fracturing treatments, enhanced well completion design) are solicited in a separate Funding Opportunity Announcement, titled DE-FOA-0001990, Advanced Technologies for Recovery of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources.
The two Areas of Interest for this Funding Opportunity Announcement are:
