  •  Some CO2 comes back up in the oil (0+ / 0-)

    their operation near Pearland, south of Houston, has a CO2 recovery plant.

    But they are pumping millions of tons of CO2 2 miles down into the oil fields, I gotta believe most of it stays down there and I think there are reactions with some mineral layers that immobilizes it.

    The Fed DOE is assuming about 75% capture and 100% sequestering as part of their massive loan guarantee to the Lake Charles Cogen and the Port Arthur Refinery H2 reformer to capture and sell CO2 to Denbury for injection at Pearland.

    Denbury also has big CO2 capture/injection networks from gas plants in Colo/Wy/Montana into nearby oil fields.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
