    In an attempt to diminish C[O.sub.2] emissions, carbon capture and storage (CCS), which is a process by which C[O.sub.2] is captured at a source and buried deep underground, is currently underway in Otsego County, Michigan. In Michigan, the juxtaposition of the Devonian Antrim Shale natural gas trend, one that contains high levels of associated C[O.sub.2] (source), with the mature Niagaran (Silurian) reef oil play (storage tank), has led to opportunities of combined enhanced oil recovery efforts with the geological sequestration of C[O.sub.2].
