Environmental Testing & Monitoring at Carbon Capture & Sequestration Sites

Global commitments toward net-zero emissions and new incentives for carbon sequestration in the form of federal tax credits (Section 45Q) or California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits are driving the rapid development of geologic carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) projects. To obtain permits for these projects and receive these credits, proactive monitoring is required to address three criteria: conformance with the proposed injection plan, containment of the gas within the injection zone, and identification of environmental effects.  Through detailed site characterization and environmental monitoring, including a robust baseline dataset, a reliable monitoring network, and an understanding of gas migration from deep strata, the operator of CCS projects can reliably detect and attribute anomalous carbon dioxide levels to natural variation versus a leak from the storage reservoir. This presentation will provide an overview of the environmental monitoring considerations and regulatory requirements for geologic CCS projects.
