Allen Police Jury Offers Support for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration Site

Occidental Petroleum plans to drill CO2 sequestration wells and store CO2 in underground storage facilities on a 27,000 acre site in the West Bay Wildlife Management area located between La. 26 and La. 112, northwest of Oberlin. The property is being leased from Hancock Forest Management.
