Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Technical Section
The CCUS technical section is an SPE community engaged in collaboration, knowledge sharing, and spearheading activities dedicated to the advancement of Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS), and decarbonization of the petroleum industry. CCUS is a method to reduce anthropogenic carbon emissions by capturing CO2 from industrial sources, such as power plants, and safely storing it in geologic formations so that it doesn’t enter the atmosphere. Depleted oil and gas reservoirs have been recognized as promising CO2 storage targets for CCUS. With over 30 years of experience in subsurface injection of CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), the petroleum industry is playing a major role in the advancement of CCUS by providing guidance/expertise in key areas related to evaluation and management of CO2 storage resources associated with CO2-EOR and geologic storage sites. Synergy between CCUS and oil/gas activities is key for providing technical and economic benefits to the petroleum industry that also help to reduce the environmental impact of the energy sector.
