The Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC), through the Plains CO2 Reduction (PCOR) Partnership, has been working to demonstrate the secure geologic storage of CO2 for the past 14 years. This work is manifested in multiple field tests, including ongoing large-scale CO2 injection; characterization of regional CO2 sources and geologic storage resources; an adaptive management approach for CO2 storage project development; and numerous lessons learned and best practices. The knowledge gained through the success of the PCOR Partnership is being leveraged by several new projects at the EERC that continue to advance the science of CO2 storage through innovative monitoring techniques and technologies. Two of these projects involve tracking injected CO2 in the reservoir through novel applications of the seismic method, while a third is developing an intelligent monitoring system to integrate simulation and monitoring data in an automated fashion.
