Video Interview: Carbon storage may open new frontier for rigs

Posted on 08 October 2009

 IADC group vice president/publisher Mike Killalea spoke with George Koperna, co-chairman of the SPE International Conference on CO2 Capture, Storage and Utilization, during the SPE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition in New Orleans on 6 October. Mr Koperna discussed the commercial possibilities of CO2 sequestration and storage, which could be a “tremendous boost to the economy when you begin to think about the numbers of wells that may need to be drilled, the existing wells that may require workover,” he said. The CO2 conference will be held 2-4 November in San Diego, Calif.

Additional information about carbon sequestration from DC’s exclusive interview with Mr Koperna and his co-chairman Tom Blasingame will be provided in the next edition of eNews from DrillingContractor.org.
