In June 2008 Occidental Petroleum and SandRidge Energy have announced plans to build a $1.1 billion gas processing and Carbon Capture and Storage plant in west Texas. The carbon dioxide is planned to be used in an Enhanced Oil Recovery project.
In its announcement, Occidental stated that "Oxy will own and operate the new facilities and will invest approximately $1.1 billion in their development. The gas processing plant, located in Pecos County, Texas, is expected to have a CO2 takeaway capacity of at least 450 million cubic feet per day. Oxy additionally will get another 50 million cubic feet per day from existing SandRidge gas processing plants. A new 160-mile long pipeline will be constructed from the plant, through McCamey, Texas, to the industry CO2 hub in Denver City, Texas." It also stated that the co2 is "expected to expand Oxy's Permian production by a minimum of 50,000 barrels of oil per day within the next five years."
