The primary purpose of this technical memorandum is to evaluate and summarize the geologic storage potential of carbon dioxide within the Laramide basins of Wyoming. The Laramide basins were formed during a major geologic event known as the Laramide orogeny, approximately 80–55 million years ago. The Laramide basins assessed for this study include the Greater Green River, Wind River, Bighorn, Powder River, Hanna, and Denver basins.
