CO2 Capture and Storage: A Solution Within 

CO2 Capture and Storage

Oil and gas have long been the low-cost fuels of choice. However, the burning of fossil fuels results in carbon dioxide [CO2] emission, which is the primary focus in the current debate on global warming. Many scientists believe that the capture and subsurface storage of CO2 hold promise as a way to offset emissions, and to enhance productivity and hydrocarbon recovery. We review CO2 capture and storage, and give examples of how government, institutional and industry collaboration benefits both the environment and the oil field.
