Chuck Fox is the President of Windy Cove Energy, LLC.  Until March 1st he was the Vice President of Operations and Engineering at Kinder Morgan CO2 Company, L.P. in Houston, Texas.  He managed the operations of the McElmo Dome, and Doe Canyon CO2 source fields located in SW Colorado, 1000 miles of CO2 pipelines and 400 miles of crude pipelines.  He was also responsible for his company’s oil and gas operations which included the injection of approximately 1 billion cubic feet per day of CO2 (20 million tonnes per year).  With a production of more than 50,000 BOPD, Kinder Morgan CO2 Company was the second largest oil producer in Texas.


Mr. Fox is one of the authors of the Society of Petroleum Engineers Monograph, Practical Aspects of CO2 flooding, published in 2002.  He is a co-instructor of the SPE courses, Practical Aspects of CO2 Flooding and Geological Sequestration of CO2.  This year he is a Distinguished Lecturer for the SPE.


Mr. Fox holds an MS degree in petroleum engineering for Stanford University, and a BS degree in mechanical engineering from Rice University.   He is a registered professional engineer in Texas and New Mexico. 

Full Description

The component technologies upon which CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) is based have long successful histories. Full implementation with a goal of sequestering billions of tonnes per year of CO2 by 2050 could lead to a market (or is it a cost?) exceeding a hundred billion dollars per year.  Despite years of efforts, large scale projects where CO2 is captured from electric generation plants and stored in the ground are almost nonexistent. Will lack of the public support or the growth of alternative, less carbon intensive energy sources prevent CCS from capturing a share of the greenhouse gas mitigation budget?  A SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis on the CCS business provides insights on whether and how carbon capture and storage will play a role in carbon management.
