    • 11. BP Initiatives for Oil Extraction <ul><li>Fracturing rocks: </li></ul><ul><li>exerting the right level and type of pressure into rocks with tight pores, we can stimulate a freer flow of natural gas deposits that would previously have remained trapped there. </li></ul><ul><li>Losal process: </li></ul><ul><li>Injecting water into a reservoir to flush out some of the remaining oil trapped in rock pores is a long-established technique </li></ul><ul><li>Injecting CO2 into wells: </li></ul><ul><li>Injecting natural gas is one way of flushing more oil out of a well </li></ul><ul><li>Micro-organisms: </li></ul><ul><li>Feeding certain micro-organisms in reservoirs might help lubricate rock surfaces, while others may simply munch on the oil until it breaks down, becoming runnier </li></ul>
