Potential sinks for geologic storage of carbon dioxide generated by power plants in North and South Carolina
(Southern States Energy Board Electric Power Research Institute, 2008)
Capacity investigation of brine-bearing sands of the Frio Formation for geologic sequestration of CO2
(First National Conference on Carbon Sequestration, May 14–17, Washington, D.C., sponsored by National Energy Technology Laboratory, 2001-05)
The capacity of fluvial brine-bearing formations to sequester CO2 is investigated using numerical simulations of CO2 injection and storage. Capacity is defined as the volume fraction of the subsurface available for CO2 ...
Executive summary: Recent results of the SACROC groundwater geochemistry summary
(Federal Requirements Under the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program for Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Geologic Sequestration (GS) Wells – Notice of Data Availability and Request for Comment (EPA-HQ-OW-2008- 0390-0297), 2008)
Gulf of Mexico Miocene CO2 Site Characterization Mega Transect
This project characterized the Miocene-age sub-seafloor stratigraphy in the near-offshore portion of the Gulf of Mexico adjacent to the Texas coast. The large number of industrial sources of carbon dioxide (CO2) in coastal ...
Pressure perturbations from geologic carbon sequestration: Area-of-review boundaries and borehole leakage driving forces
(9th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies (GHGT-9), Washington, D.C., 2008-11)
We investigate the possibility that brine could be displaced upward into potable water through wells. Because of the large volumes of CO2 to be injected, the influence of the zone of elevated pressure on potential conduits ...
CarbonSAFE Phase I: Integrated CCS Pre-Feasibility – Northwest Gulf of Mexico
Offshore storage achieves two major objectives for the US commercial large scale CCS deployment: 1. Adding large capacity to serve local regional, and potentially broader objectives 2. Lowering risk by providing storage ...
Borehole Seismic Monitoring of Injected CO2 at the Frio Site
(American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, 2005-12-05)
The recently completed CO2 injection in the brine aquifer of the Frio Formation in southeast Texas provided an opportunity to test borehole seismic monitoring techniques. Designed tests included time-lapse VSP and crosswell ...
Frio brine sequestration pilot in the Texas Gulf Coast
(Greenhouse gas control technologies: Proceedings, 6th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies, 2003-10-01)
A field experiment to pioneer CO2 injection for sequestration in a brine-bearing sandstone-shale sequence in the Texas Gulf Coast, USA, is in the preinjection modeling and planning phase. Innovations in this experiment ...
