The Michigan Basin Development Phase project
is a CCUS project that is delivering numerous benefits to the environment and to the economy. CCUS projects combine the benefits of carbon STORAGE with the added benefits of carbon UTILIZATION. In EOR
, injected carbon dioxide
is UTILIZED to help move hydrocarbons through the rock to production wells to enhance oil production. During that process some carbon dioxide remains in the rock and some is recycled through the production well for reinjection. During the past 44
months, the project has STORED 596,282
tons of carbon dioxide and monitored the production of 524,147
barrels of oil.
