  • Cumulative Water Risks related to Oil Production in the Permian Basin

    Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 06/09/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Assessing cumulative water risks from unconventional oil production is critical for developing water management approaches to reduce these risks. The objective of this study was to assess risks to groundwater and surface water from oil production and evaluate approaches to reduce these in the Permian Basin.

  • Assessing CO2 Storage Potential in the Mid-Atlantic Offshore Region of USA

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a critical technology for ensuring a range of clean energy options are available to meet future energy demands. Offshore storage can be linked to large point-sources of carbon dioxide (CO2) while avoiding many of the logistical difficulties and potential risks encountered when siting onshore projects, especially in densely populated areas of the East Coast of the United States. The Mid-Atlantic U.S. Offshore Carbon Storage Resource Assessment Project (MAOCSRAP), funded by the US Department of Energy, has completed a systematic carbon storage resource assessment of the mid- and north-Atlantic offshore coastal region to provide a strong technical basis on which future CCS efforts can be built.
