Dr. Schnaar Presenting on Geologic Sequestration Modeling

Sr. Schnaar  2024 Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage event The 2024 Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage event will take place on March 11-13, 2024 in Houston, Texas. Gregory Schnaar, PhD, PG, Principal Environmental Scientist, will present on the “U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Permitting Process for Underground Injection Control (UIC) Class VI Injection Wells and Current Industry Status”. DBS&A Staff Hydrogeologist Daniel Acevedo will also be in attendance.

Dr. Schnaar will review state of the practice in Class VI permit content and the application process including demonstration of site suitability for geologic storage, modeling in support of defining the project Area of Review, development of monitoring plans compliant with Class VI requirements, and response to EPA technical review comments. Current EPA reported timelines for permits under review will be evaluated, and each stage of the permit review will be explained with direction on how this information is shared and is publicly available.

The event will provide insights into the technical and business aspects of CCUS and will highlight current CCUS work and address related challenges, including: Subsurface Geologic Storage and Site Selection, CO₂ Enhanced Hydrocarbon Recovery and Utilization, Reservoir Modeling Monitoring and Risk Assessment, Case Studies, Industry Applications, Economics, Incentives, and Policy, Infrastructure, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESGs) and Stakeholder Engagement, Machine Learning and Data Analytics Applications and more.
