UT Tech talk promo

March 28, 2024:  Alex Bump provided the Bureau of Economic Geology with an overview of his research and thoughts for geologic carbon storage, the variables that matter, and the play for storage.  In his presentation entitled, Playing for Keeps: Novel Concepts for Carbon Sequestration, Alex outlines how carbon storage is fundamentally different from classic petroleum plays. As you may know, it is the same subsurface, but there are different goals and different constraints that conspire to create a very different idea of what “good” prospects are.

  • Ensure the integrity of the saline aquifer and assess an aquifer’s ability to contain  injected CO2 over the long term securely
  • Understand the interaction between CO2 and the saline aquifer, including its solubility, mineral reactions, and the potential for CO2 trapping mechanisms such as dissolution, residual trapping, and mineralization
  • Develop effective injection strategies to optimize CO2 storage, considering factors such as injection rates, well design, and operational monitoring techniques to track the movement, behavior, and fate of the injected CO2 within the aquifer
  • Conduct comprehensive risk assessments to identify and mitigate potential risks associated with saline aquifer storage, including geological risks, operational risks, and potential impacts on groundwater resources and the environment
  • Establish a robust monitoring and verification program to continuously monitor CO2 behavior, aquifer pressure, and potential leakage, ensuring the safety and integrity of the storage operation.
