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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Characterizing small-scale migration behavior of sequestered CO2 in a realistic geological fabric
(Environmental Science and Technology, 2012-04-01)
For typical reservoir conditions, buoyancy and capillary forces grow dominant over viscous forces within a few hundred meters of the injection wells as the pressure gradient due to injection decreases, resulting in ...
Diagenesis and reservoir heterogeneity in the Lower Tuscaloosa Formation at Cranfield Field, Mississippi
(60th Annual Convention of the Gulf Coast Association of Geologicial Societies and the Gulf Coast Section of SEPM, 2010-10-10)
The Cretaceous Lower Tuscaloosa Formation in the Cranfield Field, Mississippi, is a siliciclastic reservoir and target for geologic CO2 sequestration and enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The reservoir is approximately 3 km ...
A tool to facilitate modeling and pilot projects for sequestration of carbon dioxide in saline formations
(American Chemical Society: Division of Fuel Chemistry, 2000)
Saline water-bearing formations that extend beneath much of the continental United States are attractive candidates for disposal of CO, produced during power generation or by other industrial processes. We have quantified ...
