Project Description

  Figure 1: An overview of the technologies under development as part of this effort.

The aim of the research is to develop and test technologies ready for field deployment (Figure 1) while supporting the Carbon Storage Program objective of developing and validating technologies for safe and permanent storage. The effort is divided into five technical tasks:

  • Task 2 – Field Testing of Emerging Technologies (read more)
  • Task 3 – Advancing Monitoring Technology (read more)
  • Task 4 – Optimization Framework for Improved CO2 Injectivity, Storage Permanence, Monitoring, and Utilization (read more)
  • Task 5 – U.S.-Japan CCS Collaboration on Fibre-Optic Technology (read more)
  • Task 6 – Mont Terri Project (read more)

Project Benefits

This project will forward the deployment and testing of new monitoring technologies and methodologies. It will broaden learnings from leveraged research opportunities and provide the rapid transfer of knowledge to domestic programs.
