Acid Gas Injection and Carbon Capture and Storage

Advantages

The Advantages of Disposing Acid Gas and CO2 by Injection into Depleted Reservoirs or Deep Saline Aquifers:

          • An effective, safe, and permanent solution
          • Environmentally friendly – reduces greenhouse gas emissions
          • Eliminates emissions violations
          • Increases throughput of natural gas plants
          • Relatively inexpensive in comparison to traditional handling practices (i.e., Sulfur Recovery Units)
          • Eliminates costs associated with Sulfur Recovery Units
          • Provides CO2 sequestration benefits – obtain enhanced value under anticipated cap and trade or carbon tax
