CONSULTING: Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage

Our firm has expertise in the technologies, markets, environmental and regulatory issues, and economics of the geologic sequestration of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS).

Advanced Resources’ Experience in Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS):

Global Perspective

  • Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Feasibility Study: APEC Economies. For APEC’s Energy Working Group, ARI produced the study “Feasibility of Accelerating the Deployment of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) in Developing APEC Economies” (APEC#213-RE-01.12), which included: (1) Assess Feasibility of CCUS/CO2-EOR in Developing APEC Economies; (2) Develop Case-Study Assessments of Selected CCUS/EOR Prospects; and (3) APEC Developing Economy Regulatory Assessments; and (4) Identify Key Issues Relevant to CCUS/EOR.

Regional Perspective

  • Assessing Factors Influencing CO2 Storage in Eastern Gas Shales. For the U.S. DOE, Advanced Resources acquires, analyze, and synthesize data on reservoir properties for selected eastern gas shales. Test new technology for monitoring the movement and fate of CO2 in gas shales -- a smart particle early warning concept. Characterize potential constraints to economic CO2 storage in gas shales. Develop an updated characterization of the CO2 storage capacity and injectivity of selected eastern shales, focusing on reservoir characteristics and attributes affecting CO2 storage capacity and injectivity.

Project Perspective

  • The SECARB Anthropogenic Test, Citronelle, Alabama. The Southeast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (SECARB) Anthropogenic Test is a demonstration of the deployment of CO2 capture, transport, geologic storage and monitoring technologies. This project is one of the first and the largest fully-integrated commercial prototype coal-fired carbon capture and storage projects in the USA. Two Experimental Injection Well underground injection control permits were issued in November 2011 and they have been installed. A robust Monitoring, Verification, and Accounting (MVA) plan has been developed and implemented to monitor and track the CO2 plume and the associated pressure field, which has passed its first full year of injection operations. In addition to Advanced Resources, project participants are The Electric Power Research Institute, Southern Company, Alabama Power, Denbury Onshore LLC and the Southern States Energy Board.
