TRANSCRIPT

Natural Analogs Research Opportunities

Travis L. McLing (INL\CAES)June 13th RECS 2011 Birmingham, AL

CAES continues to develop meaningful R&D and educational collaborations among the State Universities, Idaho National Laboratory and private industryCAES conducts research that makes a difference in energy, creates the workforce for the future, and leads to technologybased economic development Progress to date: CAES affiliates have won almost $17M in R&D grants and contracts Over 250 nuclear, engineering, and science students Industry partnerships include: Premier, Blackhawk, Shell, AREVA

CAES Building Carbon Research Laboratory Micro Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Microscope Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer Scanning Electron Microscope Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy Optical Petrographic Microscope Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer, - Mass Spectrometer, Laser Ablation

Examples of Natural Analog Studies Radio active waste disposal Space exploration Contaminant transport Water infiltration/recharge CO2 sequestration

2

Natural CCS Analogues: What are Outline They

Roles of Natural and Industrial Analogues

3

Storage Security & Permanence

Natural Analog Studies are Gaining Prominence Big Sky Partnership Outcrop Studies IEA-GHG Research Program INL/CAES Soda Springs Study Crystal Geyser Latera Natural Site (Italy)

4

CO2 Natural Analogs Are Common Soda Springs, ID Crystal Geyser, UT Latera Central Italy Mammoth McElmo Dome, CO St Johns-Springerville Dome, UT Sheep Mountain, CO Jackson Dome, MS Otway Basin Australia Ultra Mafic, Oman, Norway, USA Iceland Kevin Dome.

Western Examples - Understudy

Near Surface Interaction

Springs provide valuable information on chemical evolution of CO2 laden fluids

6

Geochemistry of Reservoir Fluids

Microbiology and CCS

CO2 water rock interactions Injectibility Injection strategy Sustainability EOR Environmental Risk Leakage Contamination Produced\displaced water Monitoring Measuring and Verification (MMA) Characterization Estimates from range as high as $100 million to fully characterize a site for large-scale CCS deploymentperhaps 30-40 million before a decision can be made. Liability Price Anderson model?

Conclusion: analogs can they help?
