Supercritical CO2Supercritical CO2 is when the pressure and temperature of CO2 is increased to a critical state, changing it from a gas to a fluid.
Well Perforation DiagramIn 2014, BSCSP drilled the first production well and first geochemical monitoring well. After the drilling process, the wells were perforated in order to collect gas and fluid samples.
Seismic SurveyIn a seismic survey, large Vibroseis trucks release sound waves that travel deep underground that reflect valuable data back to ground sensors placed at the surface.
Carbon Sequestration 3-D SchematicThis diagram illustrates the location of major basins with potential for geologic CCS activities. Geologic CCS takes place deep underground and below a confining layer, or caprock.
Stratigraphic Column of Kevin DomeBSCSP plans to inject ~1 million metric tons of CO2 into the Duperow formation in the Kevin Dome.
Enhanced Oil RecoveryEnhanced oil recovery (EOR) can be enhanced through CO2 sequestration activities.
CO2 Trapping MechanismsThere are a variety of ways geologic environments store CO2, with the mineralization of CO2 being the most effective.
Geologic CCS MethodsThere are a variety of geologic CCS options including saline formations, depleted oil reservoirs, unminable coal seams, and for enhanced oil recovery.
Carbon CycleThe carbon cycle is the process by which carbon is exchanged between the atmosphere and life on earth.
Eddy CovarianceAn eddy covariance tower is a method of measuring atmospheric winds and is used to monitor changes taking place on the surface.
CO2 Injection WellCO2 is injected into the targeted underground formation and securely held in place by an overlying caprock.
Process of CCSThis diagram illustrates the concept of transporting and processing CO2 from its point of emission to the targeted injection site.
