  1. A kickoff meeting was held at the Kansas Geological Survey on February 14th, 2017.
  2. The team has identified three CO2 emission sources that can potentially deliver the targeted CO2 volumes for the ICKan EOR utilization/ geological storage sites. Along with other members of the ICKan team, Linde made site visits to two of the potential CO2 sources in Kansas, Jeffrey Energy Center and CHS Refinery, to establish relationships with the operations personnel and familiarize the facilities with the goals of the ICKan project.
  3. The two geologic complexes identified as potential sites for storing >50 million tonnes (Mt) are the Pleasant Prairie field geologic site in the Hugoton Embayment storage, considered the primary storage site, and the Davis Ranch and John Creek fields, in the Forest City Basin storage complex, considered a secondary site. Prior to applying for funding for this project the Pleasant Prairie site was estimated to have a capacity of 170 Mt and, in combination, the Davis ranch and John Creek, an estimated 50Mt capacity.
