Developing cutting edge technology - carbon capture and storage

ExxonMobil leads in one of the most important next-generation technologies: carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). CCS is the process by which carbon dioxide gas that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere is separated, compressed and injected into underground geologic formations for permanent storage.

Case study: Gaining confidence in CCS through EOR

ExxonMobil’s experience in using CO2 for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) – a process that maximizes production of oil from mature fields – provides a source of knowledge important to the advancement of CCS.
