This project aims to assess the feasibility of capturing CO2 from power plants in Northeastern Oklahoma, transporting it via barge through the Port of Catoosa, and storing it in the sea floor off the U.S. Gulf Coast. Computational models, such as an Aspen Plus simulation model, will provide detailed insights into the technical and economic feasibility of this approach, while investigations into the economic and logistical challenges of CO2 transportation to the Gulf of Mexico will inform similar strategies in other regions. Additionally, the study will analyze legal, regulatory, and liability frameworks, as well as tax incentives and maritime law, to address the broader aspects of this approach. This project aligns with efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and has the potential to contribute to the development of a regional CCUS hub in the Gulf Coast region.
