United States Department of Energy-Funded Wyoming CarbonSafe Phase III Project
CGC is the primary field contractor for this effort involving University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources, Basin Electric Power Cooperative, University of North Dakota’s Energy & Environmental Research Center, Advanced Resources Inc, Membrane Technology and Research Inc., Denbury Resources Inc., UW Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute, UW College of Business, UW College of Law, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Schlumberger. Phase III project objectives are to finalize site characterization; complete Class VI permitting to construct a new well; integrate Membrane Technology and Research Inc.’s CO2 capture assessment; and conduct National Environmental Policy Act analyses to advance toward the eventual commercialization of a large-scale CCUS project to store 50 million metric tons of CO2 over 30 years at Dry Fork Station.

United States Department of Energy-Funded Wyoming CarbonSafe Phase II Project
CGC is working with University of Wyoming, Basin Electric Power Cooperative, University of North Dakota’s Energy & Environmental Research Center, Advanced Resources Inc, Schlumberger, and Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute to evaluate several deep geologic rock layers for their suitability in permanently storing carbon dioxide. The two-year, $12.25 million study, managed by University of Wyoming’s Center for Economic Geology Research, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy under its CarbonSAFE initiative and is one of just six Phase II projects funded through that initiative.

United States Department of Energy-Funded Wyoming CarbonSafe Phase I Project
CGC supported the pre-feasibility study regarding establishing an integrated CCS project at the Dry Fork Power Station in the Powder River Basin near Gillette, Wyoming, which is capable of storing at least 50 million metric tons of carbon dioxide. Read more >>
United States Department of Energy-Funded Virginia Tech Coalbed Sequestration Project
CGC worked with Virginia Center for Coal and Energy Research, Virginia Tech, and WellDog to identify where carbon dioxide flowed and sequestered when it was pumped into three wells intersecting multiple coal seams. Other research partners in the project included Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy, DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory, Marshall Miller & Associates, Southern States Energy Board, CONSOL Energy, Geological Survey of Alabama, Sandia Technologies, and Det Norske Veritas.

If the world is going to achieve mid-century climate goals, we must capture and store much more carbon than is currently being stored. Carbon capture and storage methods are vital to meeting climate goals, as CCS delivers deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to helping achieve climate goals, CCS also provides numerous economic and community benefits.
