Hydrogen from Oil Reserves

Edison Group explains utilising in-situ combustion to exclusively produce hydrogen. In-situ combustion (ISC) is one of the oldest methods of thermal recovery from oil reservoirs. Hydrogen is a by-product of the reactions occurring during the in-situ combustion process, so the goal would be to only recover the hydrogen from the reservoir. If proven, this technique could deliver an alternative source of hydrogen without producing CO2 to surface. Elaine Reynolds, energy analyst says: ‘If successfully demonstrated, in-situ combustion offers a path to generating hydrogen that avoids greenhouse gas emissions.’
