– CO2 levels steady increase Global Warming/Greenhouse Effect
Global
– Greenhouse gases (i.e. CO2) Kyoto Protocol

– Possible ratification by U.S.
– Requires 12% reduction in CO2
emissions by 2010 Climate Stewardship Act of 2003

Price Sensitivity of CO2
Price – In order to use EOR some capital
investment is required
– Current price of CO2 $35/ton
($0.039/kg)
– EOR is not a viable option in the 30%
deviation range for the price of CO2
– In order for EOR to be used, the price of
CO2 would have to be $370/ton
($0.41/kg)
This is extremely unlikely
