    CO2 capture methods of post-combustion and pre-combustion from power plant are investigated in this study. Different injection strategies for CO2 and water individually or combined are conducted by the model scaled up from Wilmington heavy oil reservoir. The results indicate high injection rate and high initial reservoir pressure for CO2 flooding or CO2 & Water simultaneous flooding can achieve a high final recovery and CO2storage. CO2 & Water simultaneous flooding is more economic because of low pressure maintenance and less amount of CO2 needed. On the view of CO2 storage, CO 2flooding can storage much more CO2 to reduce the greenhouse-effect. © 2009 IEEE.
