Geologic carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration is central to multiple states’ climate efforts, including California’s, and has been a key component of the federal energy and environmental policy platform. Deep rock formations are injected with CO2 through the sequestration process for long-term underground storage.
Our experts provided support to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop final Underground Injection Control (UIC) Class VI regulations and technical guidance documents for permitting CO2 injection wells associated with geologic sequestration. Subsequently, we have assisted clients with permitting Class VI wells. For more information visit: https://www.epa.gov/uic/class-vi-wells-used-geologic-sequestration-co2.
With expertise and experience in geologic CO2 sequestration, multi-phase fluid modeling, vadose zone and groundwater monitoring programs, and subsurface injection, GLA can support your projects aimed at reducing CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, while protecting groundwater resources. Risks associated with carbon capture and storage (CCS) can be minimized with proper siting, operation, and monitoring.
