What is Solar EOR?
Solar EOR, also referred to as "solar enhanced oil recovery" is a new energy technology which utilizes concentrating solar power plants (with "parabolic troughs") to capture the energy of the sun - instead of natural gas (which fires boilers) - for steam generation wherein the steam is injected into oil reservoirs to produce oil through the standard enhanced oil recovery technologies.
Unfortunately for the nascent Solar EOR industry and fairly-established concentrated solar power industry, natural gas prices have plummeted to (+/-) $4.00/mmbtu, making Solar EOR a technology that cannot be justified or considered by either oil and gas companies/producers or investors wanting a competitive return on their investment.
Additional problems with Solar EOR are the problems relating to the days when the sun isn't shining - rain, fog, drizzle - and there isn't enough (or any) steam that is generated. Even when the sun is shining, the energy produced from the sun from the Solar EOR system generates steam for only about 5 hours/day. As oil and natural gas companies engaged in enhanced oil recovery operate 24 x 7 x 365, few, if any, will find much benefit being able to generate steam for only 20% - 25% of each day. These companies engaged in enhanced oil recovery operations will therefore, still be required to have a natural gas fired power plant for steam generation purposes, for their operations. There is no learning curve for these oil and natural gas companies engaged in enhanced oil recovery. Oil and natural gas companies know and understand natural gas fired power plants - typically having their own natural gas to run the power plant.
As an alternative to generating steam via concentrated solar power and Solar EOR's exorbitant first costs, we offer "tried and true" natural gas based CHP systems take the place of lower efficient natural gas power plants. We recover the practically-free hot water from the engines, for use in steam generation for enhanced oil recovery operations. Pictures of a recently-completed CHP system is found below.

American jobs and American Energy Independence. Keep the $ 1/2 Trillion dollars in USA we now send to OPEC and foreign countries each year to buy the oil America needs. And most importantly, to save the lives of America's sons and daughters who should NEVER be fight, die or be injured for OPEC / foreign oil.
hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars every year for
oil, much of it from the Middle East, is just about the single stupidest
thing that modern society could possibly do. It’s very difficult to
think of anything more idiotic than that.”
~ R. James Woolsey, Jr., former Director of the CIA
According to R. James Woolsey, for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, “The basic insight is to realize that global warming, the geopolitics of oil, and warfare in the Persian Gulf are not separate problems — they are aspects of a single problem, the West’s dependence on oil.”
