Pipeline Transportation of Carbon Dioxide Containing Impurities
10 CO2 Pipeline Operation and Maintenance

Review of numerous large natural deposits of CO2 that have been existing underground for millions of years are testament to stable long-term possibility of storage of CO2 . Since early 1970, many of these CO2 reservoirs have been accessed and used mostly for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations. An extensive pipeline network (transporting pure CO2) has been built that now stretches nearly 8000 km, mostly as previously referred to, in the United States. As a result, the technology, operations and risks associated with the transportation of pure CO2 are well understood and can be relied as a basis for transporting...
