Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization and Storage Technical Section
Carbon capture and storage (CCUS) is a method of reducing emissions of CO2 from burning fossil fuels by capturing it from large point sources and storing it so that it doesn’t enter the atmosphere. Depleted oil and gas reservoirs are promising sequestration sites, and the oil industry has 30 years of experience in injecting CO2 to enhance oil recovery. The E&P industry will play a major role in any advancement of CCUS because it has the knowledge and skills required for the evaluation, selection, and monitoring of underground storage sites.
As interest in CCUS within the industry, both as a way to reduce emissions from its operations and for wider uses in sequestering CO2 from other point sources, like power plants, has increased over the past decade, SPE programs related to CCUS have also increased. This site is designed to bring these activities together in one place for those interested in this developing subject.
Through its meetings and journals, SPE publishes a large number of CCUS-related papers. SPE compiled a list of recent papers to make it easy for those interested to monitor developments and new technologies. Archived lists from past quarters.
