• Analysis of time lapse seismic signal analysis for an EOR and CCS site, Cranfield, MS 

      Ditkof, Julie; Meckel, Tip; Hovorka, Susan; Caspari, Eva; Pevzner, Roman; Urosevic, Milovan (82nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Exploration Geophysics,, 2012-11-04)
      The Cranfield, MS EOR field site has been under CO2 flood by Denbury Onshore, LLC since 2008. More than 3 million tons of CO2 has been injected. Time-lapse 3D surface seismic data displayed a readily observable signal ...
    • Economic analysis of an integrated anthropogenic carbon dioxide network for capture and enhanced oil recovery along the Texas Gulf Coast 

      King, Carey W.; Gülen, Gürcan; Essandoh-Yeddu, Joseph; Hovorka, Susan (Proceedings of the ASME 3rd International Conference on Energy Sustainability, 2009-07-19)
      This paper explains the system economics of an example integrated network that uses anthropogenic CO2 from Texas Gulf Coast fossil power plants for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). These CO2 sources and sinks are connected via ...
    • Economic modeling of carbon dioxide integrated pipeline network for enhanced oil recovery and geologic sequestration in the Texas Gulf Coast region 

      Essandoh-Yeddu, Joseph; Gülen, Gürcan (9th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT-9), 2008-11-16)
      Naturally occurring CO2 is transported via pipelines to oil fields in West Texas to enhance production. A similar pipeline system is proposed for the Gulf Coast region of Texas. The CO2 would come from anthropogenic ...
    • EOR as sequestration: Geoscience perspective 

      Hovorka, Susan D.; Tinker, Scott W. (Symposium on Role of EOR in Accelerating Deployment of CCS, 2010-07-23)
      CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) has a development and operational history several decades longer than geologic sequestration of CO2 designed to benefit the atmosphere and provides much of the experience on which confidence ...
    • Executive summary: Recent results of the SACROC groundwater geochemistry summary 

      Romanak, Katherine D.; Smyth, Rebecca C.; Yang, Changbing; Hovorka, Susan D.; Nicot, Jean-Philipe; Lu, Jiemin (Federal Requirements Under the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program for Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Geologic Sequestration (GS) Wells – Notice of Data Availability and Request for Comment (EPA-HQ-OW-2008- 0390-0297), 2008)
    • Gulf Coast Carbon Center 2011-2014 Retrospective 

      Meckel, T. A.; Treviño, R. H.; Carr, D. L.; Hosseini, S. A.; Lu, J.; Núñez-López, V.; Hovorka, S. D.; Sun, A.; Yang, C.; Anderson, J.; Patson, M.; Romanak, K. D.; Smyth, R. C.; Olson, H. C. (2015)
    • Source-Sink Matching and Potential for Carbon Capture and Storage in the Gulf Coast 

      Ambrose, William A.; Breton, Caroline L.; Duncan, Ian; Holtz, Mark H.; Hovorka, Susan D.; Núñez-López, Vanessa; Lakshminarasimhan, Srivatsan (Proceedings of the 2006 UIC Conference of the Groundwater Protection Council, 2006)
      Current global levels of anthropogenic CO2 emissions are 25.6 Gigatons yr. Approximately 1 Gigaton comes from the Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi Gulf Coast, representing 16 percent of the U.S. annual CO2 emissions from ...
