Q: What is CO2?
A: CO2, or carbon dioxide, is a colorless and non-flammable gas. It is an important greenhouse gas that helps trap heat in our atmosphere. An increase in CO2 concentrations in our atmosphere can cause global temperatures to rise, and disrupt other aspects of the climate.
Q: Is carbon storage permanent?
A: Frontier sequesters CO2 in some of the deepest geologic zones across Wyoming. These deep zones are protected by multiple, sealing caprocks and the depth ensures CO2 stays underground.
Q: Is this proven, safe technology?
A: CO2 injection has been safely in use for more than 30 years, primarily to support oil production. In Wyoming alone, more than 5MM tons per year of CO2 are injected into oil fields across the state.
