Synopsis: Six oil fields within 100 miles of the planned coal-to-liquids facility in Mingo County were found to be prospective for miscible CO2-EOR. Four of the oil fields fall along a straight line and could, in concept, be developed sequentially along a single CO2 pipeline. The total demand for purchased CO2 from these four fields is estimated to be 47 million metric tons (890 Bcf) over 20 years. Four saline formations within Mingo County could accommodate 50 million metric tons of CO2 (accounts for uncertainty and a &"buffer zone”). The combined storage capacity – EOR within 100 miles of Mingo County and saline within Mingo County – can accommodate 3 million metric tons per year of vented CO2 for over 30 years Conclusion: there is enough potential for CO2 utilization and storage that a next level of study is a reasonable course.
