This study provides an update of the January, 2009 report, which examined and quantified the benefits of integrating CO2 storage with next generation enhanced oil recovery practices. The same analysis is repeated using updated data for the state of Alaska and the Offshore Gulf of Mexico. In this report, four next generation CO2 EOR technology options are identified and described, and the potential additional amounts of oil recovered and CO2 stored by using these technologies are quantified.
