This presentation discusses NETL's assessment of opportunities to use carbon dioxide to enhance oil recovery in the United States, as presented at the China National Petroleum Corporation workshop on CO2 EOR and Storage in Beijing, China on October 26, 2009. It discusses efforts to quantify the amount of crude oil amenable to CO2 EOR, estimates CO2 sequestration levels, and identifies current modeling efforts as well as outlines economic and environmental benefits. Basin-level data, analysis methods and recovery estimates are also presented.
