Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
CO2 is soluble in crude oil.  It cuts the viscosity allowing more to flow out of the pores of the source rock.  

It's not exactly new technology.  IIRC, CO2 injection in West Texas fields started in the 70's.
