Publication - June 21, 2013 - By Rich Wong, Matt McCulloch, Adam Goehner

ICO2N commissioned the Pembina Institute to analyze the greenhouse gas impact of storing CO2 through the process of enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The analysis looked at five different scenarios for quantifying CO2 emissions — both emissions associated with operating an EOR site as well as those associated with the oil that is produced.
