Carbon Capture and Storage Research

– Capture;    DOE’s Carbon Capture Program, administered by the Office of Fossil Energy and the National Energy Technology Laboratory, is conducting research and development activities on Second Generation and Transformational carbon capture technologies that have the potential to provide step-change reductions in both cost and energy penalty as compared to currently available First Generation technologies. The Carbon Capture Program consists of two core research Technology Areas:

– Storage     Carbon dioxide storage in geologic formations includes oil and gas reservoirs, unmineable coal seams, and deep saline reservoirs. These are structures that have stored crude oil, natural gas, brine and CO2 over millions of years.

– Utilization    Carbon dioxide (CO2) use and reuse efforts focus on the conversion of CO2 to useable products and fuels that will reduce CO2 emissions in areas where geologic storage may not be an optimal solution. These include:

– MVA   The goal of our program area is to develop and demonstrate a broad portfolio of technologies, applications, and accounting requirements that can demonstrate 99 percent retention of CO2 through geologic carbon storage. The MVA program area is testing multiple technologies

– Regional partnerships   PETROLEUM- CARBON CAPT PARTNERSHIP   DOE has created a network of seven Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships (RCSPs) to help develop the technology, infrastructure, and regulations to implement large-scale CO2 storage (also called carbon sequestration) in different regions and geologic formations within the Nation. Collectively, the seven RCSPs represent regions encompassing:

ARCTIC OIL AND NATURAL GAS POTENTIAL

The Arctic is defined as the Northern hemisphere region located north of the Arctic Circle, the circle of latitude where sunlight is uniquely present or absent for 24 continuous hours on the summer and winter solstices, respectively. The Arctic Circle spans the globe at 66.56° (66°34°) north latitude (Figure 1).1

DYK PETR arctic oil:gas  The Arctic could hold about 22 percent of the world’s undiscovered conventional oil and natural gas resources.   The prospects for Arctic oil and natural gas production are discussed taking into consideration the nature of the resources, the cost of developing them, and the political and environmental issues associated with their development…learn more>>.
