 “It hardly seems possible now that we have hosted 20 years of CO2 Conference events.  The list of contributions that the Conference has made is a long one.  Making “More and better CO2 Floods has been the goal.” Facilitating technology transfer, laying the seeds for new projects, and helping with intercompany networking is at the core of the Conference mission.
     During the years, the Conference has expanded to a full week and now fully incorporates carbon capture and storage objectives as the understanding of the many complexities and challenges of commercial CO2 capture and storage have emerged.  CO2 EOR and storage reservoir targets have grown dramatically as the science and engineering of residual oil zones has come to the center stage at the Conference. The guiding sponsors for the agenda building has grown from a meager four companies in 1994 to over 35 for 2014.  The sponsor list is clearly the “who’s who” of CO2 flooding companies. The Conference would not be possible without them and expresses thanks for their industry leadership.  Their contributions extend well beyond their participation in the planning sessions; they encourage their employees to share their case histories, they open their fields to the field trips, and share their ideas in what is all-too-often a proprietary world.  The twenty years of efforts seem to have been worth it.  Thanks need to go to all the attendees and supporters from the organizing committee.  See you in December.”

Collaborate And Create 2014



“The CO2 Conference Week is the only place you can immerse yourself in all of the exciting aspects of CO2: from the latest developments in and actual case histories of CO2 enhanced oil recovery to carbon capture, utilization and storage; all the while networking with the professionals working within the World’s premier field laboratory for enhanced oil recovery




Airlines serving Midland are Continental (IAH, Houston’s Bush Intercontinental and from Denver’s Intn’l Airport) and Southwest Airlines (from Hobby in south Houston, from Dallas’ Love field, and from Phoenix and Las Vegas).  American Eagle serves Midand from the Dallas Regional Airport (DFW).  Continental flights are either the Brazilian Embraer jets or United turboprops, the Southwest flights are Boeing 737 jet service, and the Eagle flights can be either regional jets or turboprops.


Attendees should note that the Midland/Odessa hotels are very difficult to reserve due to the intense oil and gas activity in the region – several room blocks in addition to the Doubletree one (see conference website) have been established and early reservations are not only recommended but probably necessary.  The largest room block has been set up at the Midland Doubletree (by Hilton) across the street from the Midland Center in Downtown Midland (  The Room Block Code is “CO2.”  Other room blocks are listed under the hotel tab.  Activity in the Permian Basin is intense and rooms are limited in the Midland and Odessa Hotel room blocks so, again, early registration is recommended.
