BP, Chevron, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Southern Company and Denbury Resources (whose core business is enhanced oil recovery using CO2have formed a group to promote carbon capture, storage and utilisation. The Energy Advance Center is the name of the new endeavour, with the lobbying firm representing it telling news organisation Axios that the aims of the group are to improve the image of fossil fuel companies in relation to greenhouse gas emissions, promote carbon capture, storage and reuse, and enhance economic opportunities from the use of CO2. The new alliance therefore looks to be less technical and more political, but if the politics are successful it may lead to technical development.
