Geological CO2 Storage Characterization

The Key to Deploying Clean Fossil Energy Technology

Editors: Surdam, Ronald C. (Ed.)

  • Illustrates how current scientific principles, research tools, and technology can be integrated and applied to a specific site to evaluate its potential for commercial CO2 storage
  • Provides a useful road map for the implementation of carbon capture and storage (CCS) on a large scale
  • Moving beyond previous disparate theoretical studies, this book presents a complete picture – from start to finish – of the process necessary to identify, characterize, and confirm the validity of a potential geological carbon storage site

About this book

This book investigates geological CO2 storage and its role in greenhouse gas emissions reduction, enhanced oil recovery, and environmentally responsible use of fossil fuels. Written for energy/environmental regulators at every level of government (federal, state, etc.), scientists/academics, representatives from the power and fossil energy sectors, NGOs, and other interested parties, this book uses the characterization of the Rock Springs Uplift site in Wyoming as an integrated case study to illustrate the application of geological CO2 storage science, principles, and theory in a real-world scenario.

About the authors

Ronald C. Surdam has authored 240 articles in refereed scientific journals and books and has given more than 300 invited lectures. He founded and directed the Institute for Energy Research and directed the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute at the University of Wyoming, and has consulted for many international energy and mineral exploration corporations. Over the past 45 years, Surdam has focused on oil and gas exploration, oil shale and trona depositional systems, coal and zeolite deposits in the Rocky Mountain Laramide basins of Wyoming and other states, and anomalously pressured natural gas accumulations and geological CO2 storage around the world. He has served the State of Wyoming in numerous capacities, most recently as Director of the Wyoming State Geological Survey. Currently, as Director of the University of Wyoming Carbon Management Institute and Principal Investigator of the Wyoming Carbon Underground Storage Project ($20 million), Surdam is helping lead the effort to accomplish commercial geological CO2 sequestration in the Rocky Mountain region. As a visiting professor at three Chinese universities, he is also assisting with carbon storage in the Shaanxi and Shanxi provinces of China.
