The Carbon Sequestration Program seeks to move geologic carbon storage technologies forward so that their potential can be realized to play a major role in meeting any future greenhouse gas emissions reduction needs. The Program works in partnership with industry to develop and demonstrate advanced carbon capture, utilization and storage technologies at commercial scale. It is developing and demonstrating a portfolio of technologies that can capture and permanently store greenhouse gases. Deployment activities include demonstrating advanced CO2 measurement and detection technologies at sequestration fields, and partnership development to pursue high priority opportunities.
