Funding: US DOE

This project was funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through its core research and development program, which is administered by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). DOE emphasizes monitoring, verification, and accounting (MVA), as well as computer simulation and risk assessment, of possible carbon dioxide (CO2) leakage at CO2 geologic storage sites.

This project was funded to conduct research that contributes to the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Fossil Energy Carbon Storage Program’s effort to develop technologies to demonstrate that 99 percent of injected CO2 remains in the injection zones, and to the development of Best Practices Methods for Geologic CO2 Storage site selection, characterization, site operation, and closure practices.
