Does EPA/DOE define a certain Co2 stream composition requirement for transportation/storage similar to strict guidelines in UK and Europe? Is anyone aware of such regulation/documentation? Does EERC portal has anything on this subject?
For CCS Hubs, Co2 streams will come from different emitters. Upon overcoming the transportation bottleneck (materials which can handle most hazardous impurities, Sox, Nox), different compositions might head to CCS Sinks/Banks. As of now, does EPA/DOE restricts the composition of CO2 being transported/injected?
Second question is with regards to reservoir response to CO2 with impurities. Is anyone aware of any recent core flooding experiments being conducted in US/Europe which has defined the implications of impurities in different type of depleted reservoirs?
Any help in this regard will be much appreciated.
The Oil Industry has been transporting CO2 commercially for over 51 years with over 2,000 miles of pipeline infrastructure without issues. The same for CO2 Storage into Deep Saline Reservoirs.
