Synopsis: This paper presents compiled information on sources of carbon dioxide (CO2) for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations in the United States. CO2 supply in 2010 was 58 MtCO2. Production from natural sources accounted for 85% of the 2010 CO2 supply. Natural gas processing accounted for 13% of 2010 supply. The forecast rate of CO2 supply in 2015 is 93 MtCO2/yr, a 60% increase over the 2010 level. Hydrocarbon conversion facilities with CO2 capture account for 36% of the projected growth between 2010 and 2015. NOTE: By clicking the link below, you will be directed to a non-government website.
