Plains CO2 Reduction (PCOR) Partnership

CCS Projects in Our Region

The PCOR Partnership is bringing industry, government, and communities together to optimize practical and environmentally sound carbon storage in our region. From 2005 to 2009, the PCOR Partnership conducted four field validation tests that confirmed the effectiveness of storing CO2 in soils and plant materials at the earth’s surface as well as deep underground in the different types of rocks found in the region. With the success of the validation tests, the PCOR Partnership is currently participating in two large-scale demonstration projects that will each inject a million tons of CO2 deep underground each year over a period of 10 years. Additionally, the PCOR Partnership is participating in other carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects throughout our region at various levels of involvement.
