Shinn, John , Chevron, Richmond, CA
The global warming issue poses a number of potential challenges and opportunities for the oil industry. Ongoing negotiations are defining not only targets for greenhouse gas reduction but also mechanisms to enable countries and companies to respond. A broad range of options exist to reduce or sequester emissions. Underground injection of CO2 could provide an interesting alternative. In this paper, we will discuss some of the important technical, economic, and political questions which surround the ultimate viability of this option.
