EERC Geologist Wes Peck talks about the results of CarbonSafe studies in North Dakota

Wes Peck, a geologist and project manager of CarbonSafe at the UND Energy & Environmental Research Center in Grand Forks is Kate Muggerud’s guest on this week’s new podcast titled “Mined: Lignite Energy in America.”

Wes talks about the studies of subsurface geology that have been completed as electric utilities look to store CO2 underground. He also talks about how CO2 can be used for enhanced oil recovery in partially depleted oil fields.

Each week, host Kate Muggerud interviews leaders within the energy industry on a variety of topics. Her goal is to connect with others who have the same interest and wish to become more knowledgeable about energy and emerging technologies. 

Mined: Lignite Energy in America is sponsored and produced by the Lignite Energy Council, a trade association representing the power plants, mines and the Great Plains Synfuels Plant in North Dakota along with more than 300 companies that provide goods and services to the lignite industry.
