Non-Conventional Oil

Non-Conventional Oil

Oil Sands are unconventional petroleum resource which contain a naturally occurring mixture of sands, water and clay, which are soaked with bitumen. Oil Sands are produced by lowering the oil viscosity by applying heat or adding solvent by injection, which is because the liquid products do not flow naturally due to their high viscosity. Producing this type of unconventional petroleum could be a highly value-added industry project, and is expected to expand in the longer term due to the fact that there are many undeveloped areas for Oil Sands. Major bitumen deposits are found in such areas as Western Canada and Venezuela. KNOC started oil sand production projects in Athabaca, Canada in 2006, and has been producing commercial oil since 2018. Based on our experience and know-how from this project, we are carrying out government R&D program on heavy-oil production plant development and targeting the recovery enhancement of the heavy oil by using a new production method which is eco-friendly, low-carbon technology. Moreover, we are contributing to securing competitiveness on entering plant construction sector of heavy oil industry by developing integrated operation facility and related commercial models.

CCUS(Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage)

According to the government's carbon-neutral promotion strategy, the reduction goal of CO2 emission is 4 million tons per year until 2030 with CO2 underground storage. KNOC is carrying out the first CCUS demonstration project (400 thousand tons/year) in the depleted gas field of the East Sea and has established a exploration strategy for domestic continental shelf to find large-scale CO2 storage area. To secure the capabilities in CCUS technology development, KNOC has conducted a key research project on CCUS - ‘A dynamic behavior analysis study on mesoscale CCS system at a gas field in the Korean East Sea'. KNOC will secure technology for CCUS demonstration in the East Sea and contribute to the national carbon-neutral policy by expanding CCUS business including large-scale CCUS projects and blue hydrogen-linked CCUS projects.

Establishment of Full Cycle, Value Chain Ammonia-Hydrogen project

Establishment of Full Cycle, Value Chain Ammonia-Hydrogen project

As a global energy corporation with technologies on natural gas production and on Carbon Capture and Storage, KNOC is currently making progress on carbon neutral Ammonia-Hydrogen business project. Our purpose is to contribute to meeting the Hydrogen Supply Targets of Korean government and to finding New Growth Engines in the future Based on KNOC’s strengths in areas of natural gas development and strategic petroleum storage, we analyzed our technical maturity and commercial feasibility for participating the Hydrogen projects. Outcome of these analyses indicate that we can play important roles on some parts of the full cycle, value chain Hydrogen projects, which include various activities from the Hydrogen production to Hydrogen utilization.
