“Delivering a road map for carbon capture, and storage in Oklahoma by assessing the viability of stacked storage”

Description: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concludes that CO₂ capture and storage (CCS) is critical for climate-stabilizing energy transitions. In CCS, captured CO₂ is sequestered in saline aquifers within sedimentary basins. The CO₂ storage capacity and the rate of injection are functions of the geology of the saline aquifer, which is uncertain. To minimize impacts of this uncertainty, CCS projects could include backup plans, such as co-locating geologic CO₂ storage (GCS) sites with or near existing CO₂ -enhanced oil recovery (CO₂ -EOR) operations.
