Assessing global geologic carbon dioxide storage resources

November 9, 2022

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy (U.S. DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM), the IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG), and the Clean Energy Ministerial Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage Initiative (CEM-CCUS Initiative), plans to work with partner nations to assess geologic carbon dioxide (CO2) storage resources globally. The goal of this work is to help countries, particularly those with emerging economies, understand the mass of CO2 they could potentially store in geologic units within their borders. Knowledge of the CO2 storage resources in their geologic units can provide countries pathways for reducing emissions to meet their future climate mitigation goals.
