(147a) An Overview of Recent Efforts Under the Department of Energy’s Carbon Storage Program: Moving CCS Towards Commercialization
Since 2003, DOE has been sponsoring research-oriented field projects through the Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (RCSP) Initiative. The Initiative consisted of three Phases: Phase I - Characterization (2003-2005); Phase II - Validation (2005-2011); and Phase III - Large Volume Injection Tests (2007 to 2022). As the RCSP Initiative nears completion, the Carbon Storage Program is moving forward with the Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE) Initiative which is intended to research the feasibility of a commercial scale storage project (50 Mt+ storage over 25+ years). The CarbonSAFE Initiative began in FY16 and is also taking a phased approached starting with the Integrated CCS Pre-Feasibility phase followed by the Storage Complex Feasibility phase with the potential for additional phases in the future. Phase I, Pre-Feasibility, is nearing completion and Phase II, Feasibility, is underway. This presentation will include the latest updates from the CarbonSAFE Initiative.
