Advanced Carbon Storage Research and Development

Technology Area Overview

The Advanced Carbon Storage technology area focuses on the carbon dioxide-centric aspects of onshore and offshore storage, such as the development of technologies that can improve performance and reduce the cost of tools and techniques to assess wellbore integrity, increase reservoir storage efficiency, improve management of reservoir pressure, confirm permanent storage and identify and mitigate the potential release of carbon dioxide from all types of storage complexes. The technology area contains six key areas, and more information for each area can be found in the links below. In addition, Small Business Research projects are funded through this technology area to help ensure carbon capture, utilization and storage technologies are cost-effective and commercially available.
