Geologic Storage Assessment of Carbon Dioxide in the Laramide Basins in Wyoming

The subject of this investigation is the potential for long-term geologic storage of anthropogenic carbon dioxide within the Laramide basins of Wyoming. Laramide basins are fault-bounded basins that formed between basement-cored mountain ranges during the Late Cretaceous to Early Eocene Laramide orogeny (~80–55 Ma). These basins formed by basement-rooted reverse faults with as much as tens of kilometers of vertical offset. Laramide basins are found from northern Mexico through Canada. The Laramide basins evaluated for this study include the Greater Green River, Wind River, Bighorn, Powder River, Hanna, and Denver basins. The results are summarized in Technical Memorandum 3.
