Geologic Carbon Sequestration Methodology

USGS Receives International Endorsement for Geologic Carbon Sequestration Methodology

Technical Announcement
The USGS methodology for assessing carbon dioxide (CO2) storage potential for geologic carbon sequestration was endorsed as a best practice for a country-wide storage potential assessment by the International Energy Agency (IEA). The IEA report announcing the endorsement reflects the consensus reached at two workshops in 2011 and attended by the geological surveys of Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States, together with the IEA.

Studies by the U.S. Geological Survey in Alaska, 2011 (Part B)

Lithofacies, age, depositional setting, and geochemistry of the Otuk Formation in the Red Dog District, northwestern Alaska

USGS Publication: Professional Paper 1795–B
Complete penetration of the Otuk Formation in a continuous drill core (diamond-drill hole, DDH 927) from the Red Dog District illuminates the facies, age, depositional environment, source rock potential, and isotope stratigraphy of this unit in northwestern Alaska. The section, in the Wolverine Creek plate of the Endicott Mountains Allochthon (EMA), is ~82 meters (m) thick and appears structurally uncomplicated. Note: This is part of the collection of papers that follow continues the series of USGS investigative reports in Alaska under the broad umbrella of the geologic sciences.
