A process for enhanced oil and gas recovery. An enriched flue gas is synthesized from utility plant flue gas. The enriched flue gas is customizable for specific requirements; however, the gas is formed to have a high concentration of carbon dioxide. This is used as an injectant for enhancing the liberation of gas and/or oil from subterranean formations. The injection elevates recovery while sequestering carbon dioxide from the power plant source.
What is claimed is: 1. A method for enhancing oil and gas production from a subterranean formation containing at least one of gas and oil, comprising: providing an energy conversion unit where combustion of a fuel source is effected and a power output is generated; recovering flue gas from said energy conversion unit; circulating flue gas into said energy conversion unit to form a carbon dioxide enriched stream; maintaining the combustion of said fuel in said energy conversion unit to stoichiometrically maximize carbon dioxide content in said enriched s...
