Carbon Sequestration

19 November, 2009
Who Should Attend
This e-symposium is ideal for geologists, engineers, geo-techs, geophysicists, geochemists, and other team members involved in carbon capture and sequestration.
Course Content

This presentation will review the results of ongoing carbon storage research in Kentucky by the Kentucky Geological Survey (KGS) and industry partners. The Kentucky Consortium for Carbon Storage at the University of Kentucky was formed in 2008 to implement mandates by the Kentucky state legislature to investigate the potential for carbon sequestration in deep saline reservoirs, organic-rich shales, and in enhanced oil recovery projects. The results of an 8,100 ft. CO2 injection test well drilled and completed during the summer of 2009 will be presented. In addition, preliminary results of CO2 enhanced oil recovery projects in Illinois Basin of western Kentucky will be discussed. A potential sequestration target in Kentucky is Devonian organic-rich black shale, which will be tested in the near future. Progress to date on modeling CO2 injection into low-permeability organic shales will be included. A brief summary of legal and regulatory activity in Kentucky related to carbon sequestration will be discussed.

The recorded portion is to be followed by a full day of independent study. The one-hour recorded e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. You will receive via email information about accessing your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).

Recording of original webinar, packet of independent study reading materials, PDF of original PowerPoint presentation by FTP download. (Original presentation date: November 19, 2009.) Some materials will also sent by e-mail.
