Description

How much CO2 could EOR actually sequester in the U.S.? CO2 EOR is thought by many to be a first step in getting Carbon Capture and Storage started.   But is the amount of CO2 that is delivered to the field more than the amount of CO2 emitted through EOR operations?

 

Carbon emissions can be estimated using a detailed process of counting up emissions from each emissions source at a field and plant using or they can be estimated by more simple means using a spreadsheet published by the API. What is the difference between these two methods? 

 

What does a recent study performed by the Bureau of Economic Geology say about whether CO2 is leaking to the surface from the Canyon Reef formation at the SACROC CO2 flood to the surface?

 

What does all this say about how CO2 EOR operations can change the net carbon balance?

 

Come and see.
