Triple Star Lineup of Anadarko, AEP & United Power Company at Third Annual Carbon Sequestration Summit

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2009) - Infocast's Third Annual Carbon Sequestration Summit, July 22-24, 2009 in Houston, announces the addition of Anadarko Energy Services' Vice President of Special Projects, Alan Higgins, to give a Luncheon Address on their opening day. Higgins joins two industry trendsetters, Nicholas K. Akins, Executive Vice President of Generation at American Electric Power (AEP), and Robert Divers, CEO, United Power Company, who will deliver the Keynote addresses at Infocast's highly anticipated Summit.

Higgins will present Anadarko's EOR operations in Wyoming, which utilize CO2 to stimulate oil production. As a benefit of their EOR operations, the Salt Creek field alone will be one of the largest CO2 oil recovery and geologic sequestration projects of its kind in the world.

AEP's Mountaineer Plant, located in New Haven, WV, has been issued the state's first CO2 Sequestration permit for underground injection. The Mountaineer Plant is one of the largest sequestration pilot projects in the US. The West Virginia permit will allow a maximum of 165,000 metric tons of CO2 per year (over 5 years) to be captured and injected.

United Power Company holds a large interest in Wallula Resource Recovery, LLC, the "lead developer in the World's largest Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle thermal power project with carbon capture and sequestration. The project will capture and sequester in deep basalt formation 65% of the carbon dioxide processed during the gasification portion of the plant."

The summit will cover key technologies, demonstration projects and business issues such as debt and equity investment requirements for carbon sequestration projects. Infocast's Sequestration Summit is the only meeting devoted to the business of carbon sequestration. With the addition of Anadarko, AEP, and United Power Company, this Summit will be the place for those players who wish to remain at the forefront of the industry.
