Michigan Basin Project Achievements To Date

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.
Storage 

Using EPA’s Calculator, the storage value is
equivalent to:
  • Removal of 126,000 passenger cars for a year
  • Amount stored by 564,000 acres of forest
  • Switching 21,100,000 incandescent lights to LEDs
Utilization

Based on a 2016 Michigan Oil and Gas Study, the production value provides:
  • 170 jobs yielding more than $7.3 M in income
  • $1.3 M in severance and sales taxes
  • $3.7 M in other taxes and royalties
