In the early days of the oil and gas industry, companies noted that carbon dioxide had corrosive effects on well internals; operators later found opportunities to use the compound to their advantage. Projects now underway in the oil field reflect several priorities-managing carbon dioxide's corrosive effects, using it to recover more oil after waterflood and storing it in underground formations. Because of its role in climate change, carbon dioxide has emerged as a topic of significant public interest and scientific investigation as well as the focus of hydrocarbon producers.
