Blue Source LLC Announces Successful Capture of Vent Stack CO2

Blue Source, LLC, announced on October 8th the successful capture of vent stack CO2 flowing from a natural gas processing plant in south central Colorado for use in an enhanced oil recovery site in west Texas. The reduction in carbon dioxide emissions from the plant is equivalent to removing 70,000 cars from the road.

Blue Source also reached an agreement to sell the anthropogenic CO2 and market the greenhouse gas Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) that will be produced from the project. Russell Martin, EVP of Blue Source said, “This project demonstrates that it is indeed possible to reduce CO2 in the environment and create transferable, economic benefits in the form of VERs that will go far in supporting the investment in this project.” Currently this project is creating 400,000 tons of CO2 emissions reductions through CCS per year and it is expected that the volume will rise to over 500,000 tons per year.
