Project Overview

March 2010

The major elements of the proposed study focus on the Wellington field and include evaluation of the CO2 sequestration potential in the a) Arbuckle Group saline aquifer-aquitard system, and b) overlying depleted Mississippian chat reservoir by miscible CO2-EOR. Also, the Arbuckle Group saline aquifer will be modeled over a 17+-county area in south-central Kansas to evaluate the regional CO2 sequestration potential.
