Suitability of the Alberta Subsurface for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration in Geological Media

Basically, there are five ways of sequestering CO2 in geological media: 1) through enhanced oil recovery (EOR), 2) storage in depleted oil and gas geological reservoirs, 3) replacement of methane by CO2 in deep coal beds (ECBMR), 4) injection into ... Show Abstract
