Kevin Dome Carbon Storage Project
The overall goal of the BSCSP’s Kevin Dome Project is to demonstrate that Kevin Dome is a safe and viable location for the long-term storage of carbon dioxide (CO2). The Kevin Dome Project involves the following:
- This project plans to inject up to 1 million tonnes of CO2 into the regionally extensive Duperow carbonate formation. The project infrastructure includes drilling two characterization wells and additional wells for CO2 injection and monitoring. All wells will have a comprehensive logging program and core will be extracted from three of the wells.
- Throughout the project, scientists will closely monitor the geology, geochemistry, water quality, air quality, and underground CO2 behavior.
- The project team is utilizing a wide variety of surface and subsurface characterization techniques, such as 3D modeling, geophysical surveys, logging and core analysis, and other state-of-the-art imaging and modeling analyses.
- The project is also engaging with community members, local landowners, and city officials regarding project updates, events, and related CCS news
In addition, BSCSP works with a diverse group of partners who have expertise in operational aspects including permitting, well drilling, pipeline construction, and petroleum engineering. The Kevin Dome project will provide valuable information regarding the use of similar geologic structures to safely and securely store regional CO2 emissions.
