Carbon Dioxide Capture, Utilization and Storage 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 greenhouse gas emissions by capturing CO2 and safely storing it in geologic formations so that it doesn’t enter the atmosphere. Depleted oil and gas reservoirs and deep saline aquifers are 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 while helping to reduce the environmental impact of the energy sector.
