  11. 11. But CCS benefits from CO2-EOR Enables CCS technology improvement and cost reduction. Improves business case for demonstration and earlymover projects through CO2 revenue. Helps gain public and policymaker acceptance. Builds and sustains a skilled CCS workforce. Supports CO2 transportation network development whereEOR is an option. Improves prospects for worldwide deployment.11
  12. 12. CO2-EOR challenges CO2-EOR as CCUS although important as an enabler forCCS, it is geographically and capacity limited in thelong run. North America is fortunate to have theopportunity. CO2 revenue currently alone will not bridge gap for highcapture cost scenarios; more needs to be done to narrowthe gap (technology, policy, market). Gaps exists between geologic storage permitting andCO2-EOR regimes (Class 2 vs Class 6 in the US). Low Natural Gas prices in North America driving shift togas from coal, but eventually will need CCS on gas tomeet global emissions reduction targets.12

  17. 17.  Emissions from various fossil fuel-driven industries andenergy consumption are high. Countries with a particular interest – and participating incapacity development activities – include:- Mexico – investigating CCS as part of its energy and climatechange strategies- Trinidad and Tobago – looking at CCS legal and regulatoryissues- Brazil – publishing a geological storage atlas.Importance of Central and South America17
  18. 18. What needs to be done Fuel switching and EOR not enough to meet targets. Climate change legislation not progressing sufficiently. Use of existing regulations may not be optimum toencourage CCS/CCUS. Need to include CCS in the portfolio of clean technologieswith equitable incentives and treatment - lowering cost ofmeeting reduction targets in the long run. Funding for CCS demonstration projects should beaccelerated and incentives increased from current base. Encourage CCS capacity building in developingeconomies. Opportunities emerging in Central and South America.18
