GCCC, the project leaders, have been working in carbon capture and storage (CCS) for 19 years and conducted the first assessment of large-volume offshore storage resources in the GoM in 2008.

Using insight gained over the last 19 years of GCCC’s CCS research, GoMCarb will apply the capacity and retention research to the entire Gulf of Mexico and applying it to sub-seafloor storage.

Advisory Committee

The partnership includes an Advisory Committee with international experts in offshore storage, business leaders that have expressed interest, and key participants such as state and federal stakeholders, regulators, advisors and land owners. The Advisory Committee will help guide Partnership  activities to assure that current best practices are used, that technical approaches are well-adapted to the region, and that appropriate communication strategies add value to project outcomes.
