November 19, 2008
Wyoming Business Report posted an article on Tuesday, November 18, saying the U.S. Department of Energy has awarded $66.9 million to the Big Sky Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership for a large-scale project in the Wyoming Range of western Wyoming, west of near LaBarge. The project hopes to demonstrate the ability of the Nugget Sandstone formation at the Riley ridge Unit on the LaBarge Platform to safely, permanently and economically store more than two million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2 will be supplied as a byproduct of the new Cimarex Energy helium and natural gas processing plant. The total project will cost $130.6 million, including the partnership’s cost share. The DOE grant is one of seven awards as part of the Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships program.
