Index / Climate Change, Anthropocene & Associated Issues / Carbon Sequestration

In the last century, growth in human population has increased energy use. This has contributed additional carbon dioxide (CO2) and other gases to the atmosphere. Although the AAPG membership is divided on the degree of influence that anthropogenic CO2 has on recent and potential global temperature increases, AAPG believes that expansion of scientific climate research into the basic controls on climate is important.

Index / Climate Change, Anthropocene & Associated Issues / Carbon Sequestration

Teresa Matich reports that those still following the coal industry will no doubt be familiar with the idea of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). Given growing concerns about climate change and robust demand for coal in developing nations, plenty of market watchers believe that carbon sequestration is the current key to the future of coal use.

CCS technologies help reduce CO2 emisssions by capturing CO2 from gas- and coal-fired power plants and then compressing and injecting the CO2 into the ground. CO2 is often sequestered a mile or more beneath the Earth surface, as per the US... More →

Index / Climate Change, Anthropocene & Associated Issues / Carbon Sequestration

This report defines and describes an assessment methodology for evaluation of the resource potential for storage of CO2 in the subsurface. Descriptions of assessment methods are available in the literature that address storage resources and capacities at a variety of scales, using a variety of storage mechanisms. The methodology presented in this report is intended for evaluations from the regional to subregional scale in which storage assessment units (SAUs) can be defined on the basis of common geologic and hydrologic characteristics. The resource that is assessed is the volume of pore space... More →

Index / Climate Change, Anthropocene & Associated Issues / Carbon Sequestration

Kevin Bullis reports that the new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is out, the first of which came out last fall. This new one considers how to limit greenhouse gas emissions to avoid the most serious effects of climate change. The report analyzes the cost of taking steps to stabilize greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere, switching from coal to solar power, for example, will increase electricity prices and create a drag on the economy. It found that in a best-case scenario, limiting greenhouse gas concentrations to levels low enough to keep global warming to an incr... More →

John Timmer reports that the latest estimates place the energy trade gap at around 3 percent by 2025. Although there are some reasonable questions about the value of making long-term projections about energy use, doing so is one of the duties of the US Energy Information Agency. On Monday, the EIA released an overview of a report in which it attempts to track the trends in the energy economy of the US out to 2040. The report contains some eye-popping predictions, including a huge (but brief) boom in domestic oil production, a near balance between energy imports and exports, and a peak in carbo... More →

Rebecca Trager reported on October, 2015 that the world first large-scale power station equipped with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology officially opened in Canada on 2 October, 2015, and it is expected to trap around 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide every year. The International Energy Agency (IEA) called the development a historic milestone toward a low-carbon future.

The $1.4 billion (870 million Pounds) facility will capture carbon dioxide released from its coal-fired Boundary Dam power plant near Estevan, Saskatchewan and transport it by pipeline to nearby oil field... More →
