CCUS Conference (Pittsburgh, PA) - April 28-30, 2014

Update on the 13th Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage Conference:

At the 13th Annual Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage Conference in Pittsburgh, CMI researchers presented three posters detailing work done on a current DOE grant. The presentations (abstracts below) described different aspects of their study sites sealing potential. Presenting at the CCUS conference gave CMI researchers Scott Quillinan, Ramsey Bentley, and Fred McLaughlin the chance to meet and discuss on-going research with colleagues and professionals from around the world. Groups/individuals specifically interested in CMI’s work included representatives from Pacific Northwest National Labs, Los Alamos National Labs, Ohio State School of Geosciences, USGS, Schlumberger, Melzer Consulting, Colorado School of Mines, and several engineering firms interested in brine treatment methodologies. These groups shared a common interest in defining geologic reactions to the injection of CO2, brine treatment and utilization, and formation analysis relative to fluid dynamics.

A strong theme of this year’s conference was CO2 utilization, specifically for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). Former Governor Dave Freudenthal, in a keynote address, spoke of Wyoming’s unique position and opportunities regarding carbon utilization, as well as new efforts to promote capture. Ryan Lance, former Director of the Office of State Lands, delivered a talk that outlined the State’s proactive efforts to delineate and formalize pipeline corridors and regulation in anticipation of a burgeoning CO2 market.
