About the Partnership
The Plains CO2 Reduction (PCOR) Partnership
is a multiyear collaboration of over 80 U.S. and Canadian stakeholders that is laying the groundwork
for practical and environmentally sound carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration
projects in the PCOR Partnership Region in the
heartland of North America. Meet the PCOR Partnership Partners.
Phase I - PCOR Partnership Program
- In the fall of 2003, the PCOR Partnership embarked on a 2-year, $3.3 million Phase I program focused on characterizing
sequestration opportunities in the region.
Phase II - PCOR Partnership Program
- In the fall of 2005, the PCOR Partnership launched its 4-year, $21 million Phase II program focused on carbon sequestration field validation projects.
The Phase II sequestration field projects are designed to build the core of local technical expertise
and experience needed to facilitate future large-scale CO2 sequestration efforts
in the region's subsurface and terrestrial settings.
See the Phase II prospectus (337 KB PDF).
Phase III - PCOR
Partnership Program - In the fall of 2007, the PCOR Partnership
was selected for a 10-year, multimillion dollar Phase III program focused
on implementing two commercial-scale geologic carbon sequestration demonstration projects
in the region. More on Phase III.
The PCOR Partnership is led by the Energy & Environmental Research Center
at the University of North Dakota. Meet the PCOR Partnership Team
The PCOR Partnership is one of seven regional partnerships
under the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Fossil Energy, National
Energy Technology Laboratory's (NETL)
Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (RCSP) Program.
Membership in the
provides unique opportunities to develop working relationships with stakeholders that represent a diverse
cross section of CO2 producers, end users, environmental groups, and regulators.
