Geologic Sequestration Site Characterization (GSSC) -
Recovery Act: Characterization of the Triassic Newark Basin of New York & New Jersey for Geologic Storage of Carbon Dioxide
Performer: Sandia Technologies LLC
Project No: FE0002352
The project team has gathered regional geologic data in preparation for characterization activities. This effort included creating a composite well log from nearby well logs, developing predictive models using gathered information, and calculating a CO2 storage capacity estimate. The team also has recently completed a seismic survey to further characterize the area.
In addition, the team has performed extensive outreach by launching a website and creating information packets for stakeholders.
This effort was timed to the submittal of drilling permits.
A characterization well was drilled to a depth of 6,885 feet below ground surface (bgs). After geophysical testing on the completed wellbore, the well was plugged and abandoned per permit specifications.
Sandia is integrating collected data (land cover, topographic and photo-mosaic, stratigraphic, petrographic, structural, hydrologic, and water quality) into a GIS Database
