As much as 65 million metric tons of carbon dioxide flow into oil recovery projects each year to help drive crude and profits from aging wells. But most of the CO2 comes from natural reservoirs – not refineries, power plants or other sources contributing to climate change. (Image credit: Shutterstock)

Cash, carbon, crude: Stanford study highlights a path and price to coax emissions back into oil reservoirs

A new analysis looks at what it would take for oil companies to start pumping millions of tons of carbon dioxide into their wells to boost crude production – and what it would mean for the climate.

New techniques for removing carbon from the atmosphere

Developing greener ways of extracting the oil and mitigating the resulting greenhouse gases.

Harrison Lisabeth receives 2017 AGU MRP Graduate Research Award

Congratulations to Dr. Harrison Lisabeth on receiving the 2017 AGU MRP Graduate Research Award!  During his Ph.D. research, Harry carried out innovative experiments and obtained results that have important implications in geological CO2 sequestration. This award recognizes Harry for the outstanding contributions achieved. Some of the results from this study can be found in a new publication in Earth and Planetary Science Letters.
