Document Description
A proposed CCS facility for permanent underground storage of up to 48 million tons of CO2 in two reservoir formations on approximately 9,130 surface acres in the Elk Hills Oilfield in unincorporated Kern County and the related initial source for the capture of CO2. The initial source of CO2 is the pre-combustion oilfield gas from infield locations, including uses associated with the existing Elk Hills Power Plant. Maximum injection per year from future sources would be up to 2, 210,000 tons per year divided between the two formations (R-26 and A1-A-2). The facility consists of an underground pore space, approved by the EPA as the “area of review” where CO2 will become permanently mineralized into rock, the CCS Surface Land Area over the underground storage area where limited uses will be permitted, approval of six (6) EPA Class VI UIC wells, conversion and creation of wells for CO2 leak monitoring and seismic activity, approximately 13 miles of facility and injection underground pipeline for capture of pre-combustion gas, and the related infrastructure improvements for the capture, transfer, and permanent storage of CO2.
