The Honorable Richard Gephardt,
The Honorable Tim Hutchinson,

and experts for
a Capitol Hill Briefing:

An Energy, Economic and Environmental Solution for Our Nation:
Using Captured Carbon Dioxide for Enhanced Oil Recovery

Thursday, June 26, 2014
2-4 p.m.

Russell Senate Office Building
Room SR-385
2 Constitution Avenue, NE
Washington, D.C., 20002

Carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) is a decades-old, proven commercial practice that involves injecting CO2 into already developed oil fields to coax additional production. Increasing the supply of CO2 captured from power plants and industrial sources for use in CO2-EOR has the potential to increase American oil production by tens of billions of barrels, while safely storing billions of tons of CO2 underground. The event will focus on CO2-EOR’s benefits for domestic energy production, the economy, and the environment.

Welcome

BRAD CRABTREE
Vice President, Fossil Energy, Great Plains Institute

Introductory Remarks

The Honorable RICHARD GEPHARDT
Former Majority Leader, U.S. House of Representatives (D-MO)

The Honorable TIM HUTCHINSON
Former U.S. Senator (R-AR)

Panel Discussion

THOMAS ALTMEYER
Vice President, Government Affairs, Arch Coal, Inc.

The National Enhanced Oil Recovery Initiative (NEORI) brings together industry, labor and environmental advocates, and state officials to foster increased domestic oil production through the capture, use and storage of CO2 from power plants and industrial facilities.  NEORI is convened by the Center for Energy and Climate Solutions (C2ES) and Great Plains Institute (GPI).

5 Things to Know About CO2-EOR

May 5, 2014

1. CO2-EOR substantially increases domestic energy reserves. CO2-EOR accounts more than 300,000 barrels of oil production per day, or around 5 percent of annual U.S. oil production, and the industry could grow considerably in the near-term. According to the National Energy Technology Laboratory, between 21 and 63 billion barrels of oil could be “economically-recovered” using […]

Blog: Capturing CO2 from industrial sources for use in EOR is happening now, but more needs to be done

July 23, 2013

In announcing his climate action plan, President Obama highlighted a vital technology for reducing emissions: carbon capture and storage. I recently had the opportunity to tour a first-of-its-kind CCS operation at an Air Products plant in Port Arthur, Texas. Air Products has integrated state-of-the-art CO2 capture technology into an existing hydrogen plant. Despite being the most abundant element in […]
