On July 26th, the Atlantic Council’s Energy and Environment Program hosted a discussion with Vello A. Kuuskraa and Michael Moore, internationally recognized experts on CO2 enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and carbon markets. Pamela Tomski, senior fellow for the Energy and Environment Program, moderated the discussion.
In the absence of US legislative action on climate policy, there has been a shift in US policy emphasis from carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology to CCUS with the “U” for “utilization” for EOR. This briefing investigated current domestic carbon and oil market dynamics, examined the potential for CO2 EOR, and addressed the challenges of implementing large-scale EOR with CO2 capture and storage. It also outlined supportive policies and actions that could accelerate the integrated use of CO2 EOR and CCS.
