The behaviour of carbon dioxide at high pressures has great industrial
importance. This volume will complement other volumes in the Solubility
Data Series covering the behaviour of carbon dioxide at lower pressures.
The solubility of carbon dioxide and the lower alkanes is important
as most natural gases contain CO2 as well as these alkanes.
Usually, CO2 has to be separated from the hydrocarbons to
meet the specifications on calorific value of fuels. In Enhanced Oil
Recovery (EOR), carbon dioxide is used to displace the hydrocarbons
from the reservoir and the solubility of CO2 in the hydrocarbons
is important to ensure that miscibility occurs, with concomitant increase
in the oil recovered.
