Kevin Dome Characterization Study

This report reviews the potential of Kevin Dome, a geologic formation located in north central Montana, as a potential underground large-scale sequestration site. In assessing and characterizing the commercial viability of Kevin Dome, this report provides carbon sequestration estimates of similar geologic domes in Montana. The study results suggest a process to adequately characterize and utilize Montana’s geology to (1) commercially produce CO2 for enhanced oil recovery, (2) commercially store CO2 for future enhanced oil recovery, (3) encourage the use of CO2 as a tertiary oil recovery methodology to improve oil and gas production and spur the economic activity and state tax revenue growth that will accompany such an exploitation of these resources, and (4) provide a commercial site to permanently sequester CO2 to minimize potential environmental impacts of releasing CO2 into the atmosphere.
