EORI’s Senior Geologist, Graeme Finley, will co-present the study results of “Increasing CO2 Storage Options with Injection of CO2 in US Shales” at the United States Energy Association’s (USEA) CONSENSUS webinar.

The study has defined three new, large-capacity settings for storing CO2 in shale formations—the Niobrara Shale in the DJ Basin of Colorado, the Cana-Woodford Shale in the Anadarko Basin of Oklahoma, and the Mowry Shale in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. These three shale formations would provide nearly 4,600 million metric tons (MMmt) of CO2 storage capacity in basins where saline formations, a common target for CO2 storage, are notably limited or are still poorly defined. This amount of CO2 storage is equivalent to removing over 1 billion passenger vehicles for one year, or approximately every passenger vehicle in the United States for 9 years.
