"Aim of this article is to estimate and discuss the economic and environmental impacts for the obtainment of CO2 in such conditions to be injected as enhanced oil recovery (EOR) fluid. Particularly, this study focuses on the compression sector design needed to process the CO2 coming from an already existing absorption plant. Currently, 18.68 kmol/h of a high-purity CO2 stream may be used for injecting and increasing the production of a pilot crude oil well near the location of the industrial plant. However, it is still necessary to perform an economic evaluation to quantify the investment and the operating costs that the compression involves..."
