Developing Environmental Protocols and Monitoring to Support Ocean Renewable Energy and Stewardship, Topic 5: Sub-Seabed Geologic Carbon Dioxide Sequestration Best Management Practices
Lead PI: Rebecca Smyth, University of Texas-Austin
Start Year: 2010 | Duration: 3 years
Partners: Det Norske Veritas, Mustang Engineering, Inc., Texas General Land Office, Texas A&M University, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, & Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement
The project will use (1) existing knowledge and experience with onshore carbon sequestration monitoring and risk assessment, (2) existing and proposed policy (both domestic and international), and (3) international collaboration with groups already conduction offshore carbon dioxide transport and sequestration to compile information needed to establish best management practices (BMP) for U.S. offshore geologic sequestration.
