Abstract

The Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium (MGSC) is one of seven regional partnerships selected by the DOE to determine the best regional approaches for capturing and storing CO2 that might otherwise contribute to global climate change. MGSC's Phase II/III is six sequestration pilots of which there are four EOR pilots, one S/ECBM pilot and one, large-scale brine-saturated formation injection pilot. Injection of CO2 into coals may produce additional methane to augment natural gas supplies. Injection into mature oil fields is expected to demonstrate methods to recover some of the approximately 0.86-1.3 billion bbl of EOR resource that was projected in the DOE Phase I Assessment for the Illinois Basin. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 16th SPE/DOE Improved Oil Recovery Symposium (Tulsa, OK 4/19-23/2008).
