Gas Injection Probably Triggered Small Earthquakes Near Snyder, Texas

AUSTIN, Texas — A new study correlates a series of small earthquakes near Snyder, Texas between 2006 and 2011 with the underground injection of large volumes of gas, primarily carbon dioxide (CO2) — a finding that is relevant to the process of capturing and storing CO2 underground.

U.S. Can Curb Carbon Emissions While Boosting Domestic Oil Production, Report Says

Report urges U.S. to increase combination of carbon capture and storage with enhanced oil recovery to increase domestic oil production while curbing emissions of carbon dioxide.

University Receives $19 Million to Monitor Carbon Storage Project

The University of Texas at Austin will receive up to $19 million to design and monitor a carbon capture and storage demonstration project that will take CO2 from a coal-fired power plant and inject it deep underground. It will be among only a handful of other carbon capture and storage tests around the world using human-made CO2.

The University of Texas at Austin Receives $1 Million Grant to Build Carbon Capture and Storage Workforce

The University of Texas at Austin will use a $994,702 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to help create a skilled workforce for the emerging carbon capture and storage industry and to build public awareness of the technology's benefits to society.
