GlassPoint Solar and partner Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) say they have reduced costs by 55 per cent in the scale up of a massive desert solar project to produce steam used in thermal enhanced oil recovery (EOR).

GlassPoint’s enclosed trough technology features a unique solar thermal design that takes parabolic trough collectors, or large curved mirrors, and puts them inside an agricultural greenhouse. The mirrors concentrate sunlight on a pipe filled with oilfield-grade water and boils the water directly into steam. The process is typically fuelled by burning natural gas.
