Geologic Storage Technologies & Simulation & Risk Assessment

The Carbon Storage Program’s Geologic Storage and Simulation and Risk Assessment (GSRA) Technology Area supports research to develop technologies that can improve containment and injection operations, increase reservoir storage efficiency, and prevent and mitigate unwanted migration of CO2 in all types of storage formations. Research conducted in the near and long term will augment existing technologies to ensure permanent storage of CO2 for the emerging CO2 storage industry. Read more about GSRA research.

The program supports research that will improve the nation’s scientific understanding in the six key technologies outlined below:

Key Technologies


Each key technology for GSRA has specific research pathways. More information on each key technology research pathway can be obtained by clicking on the hyperlinks above. The timeline for the development of technologies for each research pathway begins with applied research that leads to system integration and small-scale testing, and culminates with large-scale testing.

GSRA Projects Portfolio Interactive Map


NETL is supporting a portfolio of projects to address the research pathways for each of the key technologies. The performer locations of the current portfolio of GSRA projects are shown on the map below.
