HOUSTON, Dec. 13
-- ExxonMobil Corp. completed its $86 million expansion of the carbon dioxide capture plant near La Barge, Wyo.

The Shute Creek natural gas processing plant in Lincoln County, Wyo., receives gas from La Barge field in Sublette County, Wyo. Composition of the gas from La Barge is 66% CO2, 21% methane, 7% nitrogen, 5% hydrogen sulfide, and 0.6% helium.

The plant expansion included installation of compressors to capture 50% more CO2 for use in enhanced oil recovery projects and other industrial uses.

The plant now has the capacity to capture 365 MMcfd of CO2 from gas streams. ExxonMobil sells CO2 to other oil companies for EOR projects (OGJ, Dec. 7, 2009, p. 41).
