The Western Governors Association (WGA) on Thursday passed a resolution to expand the use of carbon dioxide (CO2) injections in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) throughout the western oil/natural gas production fields as one of five WGA resolutions passed at the group's annual meeting in Incline Village, NV (June 24-26). WGA is seeking to have Congress and the Obama administration provide federal incentives to increase CO2 supplies available to the oil industry to purchase and use in EOR, along with supporting efforts to promote wider awareness of the benefits of CO2 in EOR. The group's other resolutions focused on surface transportation to western ports, water resources management, agriculture, and national nonfuel minerals/mining policy.
