Managing Carbon Dioxide

The Geologic Solution

It’s 1916 in the American southwest…a rumble on the drilling platform…wildcatters dive for cover as a cloud of mist explodes from the wellbore…natural gas or something else? What began as a search for oil became the story of geologic CO2, enhanced oil recovery, and geologic CO2 sequestration–a 100-year journey from a drill hole venting CO2 in the desert of northern New Mexico–to a technology for managing carbon dioxide emissions from large industrial sources like power plants.
