Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) Committee-DEG

The Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) Committee's mission is to develop programs for AAPG annual, sectional, regional, and international meetings, as well as lectures, short courses, and publications that will demonstrate the current CO2 Sequestration studies and projects as they are related to environmental issues and problems; to present CO2 sequestration-related subject areas and skills that may be of interest to fellow AAPG geoscientists including:

  • Carbon Dioxide Sequestration in Geological Media
  • Regional Assessment of CO2 Geological Sequestration Potential
  • Methodologies for Evaluation of Sites for Geologic Carbon Dioxide Sequestration
  • Experience and New Results from Current Geological Sequestration Projects
  • Modeling and Simulation of Carbon Dioxide Geological Sequestration
  • Monitoring Sequestration Performance
  • Economics and Regulatory Aspects of Carbon Dioxide Sequestration


The CCUS chair is Autumn Haagsma. She is actively seeking other interested professionals to join her on this important committee. Contact her if you are interested.

Last year’s ACE 2018 convention in Salt Lake City was an all-out success on this topic, both as oral sessions and poster sessions. CCUS returns again for ACE 2019 as a subject for Theme 6 on Energy Sustainability and the Environment. Three related proposed sessions for abstract submission are Geologic carbon storage; Carbon lifecycle linkages—sources, sinks and economics; and Applications of carbon storage learnings to subsurface characterization and hazard assessments. Abstract deadline is the end of September, 2018.
