Going Underground with Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS)
Join Dr. Matthew Minnick from RESPEC’s Energy Group as he hosts a webinar about carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS). Matt is leading subsurface engineering and modeling on multiple carbon capture storage projects in North America in various sedimentary basins. He is the chief reservoir engineer on multiple geothermal energy projects worldwide and is helping developers understand the use of supercritical CO2 for geothermal power production, storing CO2, and generating green power.
Along with the transition to renewable energy, CCUS is necessary to meet a carbon-neutral economy. Research regarding CO2 storage in the subsurface has been ongoing for decades. Tax structures have now made CCUS feasible, and the rush to develop underground storage facilities is underway in North America. This webinar will address the subsurface engineering, permitting, project development, and potential risks surrounding CCUS. The potential for subsurface storage coupled with geothermal power generation will also be addressed. The main topics from this webinar will include the following:
- What is CCUS?
- Introduction to subsurface storage development.
- The unique risks around CCUS.
- The coupled storage and geothermal energy potential.
