American National Standards Institute's (ANSI) creation of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to ISO TC-82 mining with a focus on reserve estimation, safety, engineering, Underground Coal Gasification (UGC), and Coal Mine Methane (CMM) and Ventilation Mine Methane (VAM)

Since 1955, the ISO Technical Committee 82-Mining has been in existence but little to no standards have resulted from this committee, largely due to the lack of participation of key countries (the US, UK, and Australia). Currently, Germany, including Russia and China has created renewed interest in developing standards that meet the specific needs of international mining operations. This includes standardization of specifications relating to machinery and equipment used in opencast and underground mining for the extraction of solid mineral substances. However, the preparation and processing of the minerals; recommended practice in the presentation of plans and drawings used in mine surveying; methods of calculation of mineral reserves; and terminology are excluded. This activity is being conducted because standards are needed to ensure mining operations are done safely and with due regard for protection of the environment. Source

Oil and Gas Journal | Year: 2012
The Oil & Gas Journal conducts a survey of carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery activity, including providing detailed field by field reports of performance and oil production. The OGJ EOR Survey compiles EOR information voluntarily provided by industry and makes this information available to the public. The number of CO 2-EOR projects has increased from 114 in 2010 to 123 in 2012, as industry is applying this EOR process to new fields and new geological settings. New projects are not implemented since the CO 2 continues to be dedicated to existing projects. Numerous new projects are normally needed in the oil industry to offset the sharp declines of the maturing projects. Chaparral Energy has been busy in the Oklahoma and Texas Panhandle region with a total now of five floods there to go with its two in central Oklahoma. Chaparral Energy is also working on an eighth flood at Burbank field in northeastern Oklahoma. Source

CO 2 sources, sinks and migration mechanisms in natural CO 2 gas fields provide critical analogues for developing the safe application of anthropogenic CO 2 sequestration technologies. Here we use noble gas and carbon isotopes, together with other gases, to identify and quantify the origin, transport and trapping mechanisms of CO 2 in the Late Cretaceous Jackson Dome CO 2 gas deposit (98.75% to 99.38% CO 2). Located in central Mississippi, USA, and producing from >5000m, it is one of the deepest commercial CO 2 gas fields in the world. 10 gas samples from producing wells were determined for their noble gas, chemical and stable carbon isotope composition. 3He/ 4He ratios range between 4.27R a and 5.01R a (where R a is the atmospheric value of 1.4×10 -6), indicating a strong mantle signature. Similar to CO 2 deposits worldwide, CO 2/ 3He decreases with increasing groundwater-derived 20Ne (and 4He). We model several different processes that could account for the Jackson Dome data, and conclude that, similar to other CO 2 dominated deposits, a Groundwater Gas Stripping and Re-dissolution (GGS-R) process best accounts for observed 20Ne/ 36Ar, 84Kr/ 36Ar, CO 2/ 3He, δ 13C(CO 2), 4He, 20Ne and 36Ar. In this context, crustal and magmatic CO 2 components contribute 57% and 43%, respectively. Changes in CO 2/ 3He across the field show that groundwater contact is responsible for up to 75% loss of original emplaced CO 2. δ 13C(CO 2) variance limits the degree of precipitation to be less than 27%, with the remaining CO 2 loss being accounted for by dissolution only. A higher degree of dissolution gas loss and evidence for water contact at the reservoir crest compared to the reservoir flanks is used to argue that CO 2 in this system has not undergone subsequent loss to either dissolution or precipitation since shortly after reservoir filling at over 60Ma. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

CO2-enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) has emerged as a major option for productively using CO2 emissions captured from electric power and other industrial facilities as part of carbon capture and storage (CCS) operations. Not only can depleting oil fields provide secure, well-characterized sites for storing CO2, such fields can also provide a source of revenues to offset the costs of capturing CO2 by producing incremental oil. This paper draws significantly on work by Advanced Resources International, Inc. (ARI), sponsored by the United States Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory (U.S. DOE/NETL) [ Advanced Resources International, Inc. (ARI). Improving Domestic Energy Security and Lowering CO2 Emissions with "Next Generation" CO 2-Enhanced Oil Recovery; ARI: Arlington, VA, 2011; http://www.netl.doe.gov/energy-analyses/pubs/storing%20co2%20w%20eor-final.pdf ] and the International Energy Agency Greenhouse Gas Research and Development Programme (IEAGHG) [ Advanced Resources International, Inc. (ARI). CO 2 Storage in Depleted Oilfields: Global Application Criteria for Carbon Dioxide Enhanced Oil Recovery; ARI: Arlington, VA, Dec 2009; IEAGHG Programme Technical Report Number 2009-12 ], that demonstrates that CO 2-EOR offers large CO2 storage capacity potential and could accommodate a major portion of the CO2 captured from industrial facilities for the next 30 years. This work also demonstrates that CO 2 can be effectively and permanently stored when deployed in association with CO2-EOR, with the amount stored depending upon the priority placed on maximizing storage. In addition to showing that CCS benefits from CO2-EOR by providing the revenues from sale of CO2, overcoming other barriers, while producing oil with a lower CO2 emissions "footprint", the report demonstrates that CO2-EOR needs CCS, because large-scale future implementation of CO2-EOR will be dependent upon CO2 supplies from industrial sources. © 2013 American Chemical Society.
