GoMCarb Monitoring, Verification, Assessment

Monitoring (Task 4)

GoMCarb identifies and matures a suite of established monitoring, verification, and assessment (MVA) technologies that are suitable for the unique offshore environments encountered in the gulf. GoMCarb will then test and validate these technologies under GoM conditions and see how they perform when monitoring the subsurface, seabed, seawater, and CO2 transportation pipelines.

Technologies such as ultra-high-resolution 3D (UHR3D) seismic data (P-cable) and distributed acoustic sensors (DAS) are assessed for monitoring deep injection reservoirs and the geology overlying the reservoir. GoMCarb will compile and analyze risk assessment and mitigation practices used by international offshore storage efforts, past and present, to assess beneficiary and economical practices.
