Utilizing carbon dioxide (CO2) for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is not new, but a growing number of policymakers see it as an important part of the emerging carbon-management landscape. More importantly, injecting CO2 into EOR projects relies on proven technology that has been safely implemented and in operation for more than 30 years.

Anadarko Petroleum operates one of the world’s largest EOR projects using CO2 – the Salt Creek project in Wyoming. Over the last six years, Anadarko has injected more than 174 billion cubic feet of carbon dioxide into Salt Creek, leading to the production/recovery of 10 million incremental barrels of oil.

EOR projects like Salt Creek could store hundreds of billions of cubic feet of compressed carbon dioxide, which would provide companies necessary time to test and deploy larger scale carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies.

EOR projects that were designed to be operated strictly for increased oil recovery now offer the potential to permanently store carbon dioxide. However, sizable legal, policy, geologic, and technological obstacles present significant challenges to realizing the potential of EOR to permanently store CO2.

Learn from experts at Anadarko Petroleum and Stoel Rives about the proven technology currently being used and how to removeing the technological, legal, operational, and regulatory obstacles that limit permanently storing carbon dioxide in EOR projects.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify how EOR could permanently store power-plant carbon dioxide emissions
  • Quantify EOR’s capacity to store carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants
  • Discuss the technological, geological, and legal/policy impediments to permanently store carbon dioxide in depleting oil reservoirs
  • More effectively position your company on this emerging carbon issue
  • Evaluate the cost-effectiveness of carbon storage in EOR projects as a short-term transition to CCS

Instructional Methods
