Well Drill HeadTwo different wells were drilled for the Kevin Dome Carbon Storage Project. The first well reached a depth of 4,700 ft. and the second well reached a depth of 3,800 ft.
Kevin Dome Well HeadFor the large-scale Kevin Dome carbon storage project, BSCSP worked with their partners in the design, construction, and completion of two different wells needed for the project.
Kevin Dome Well SiteBSCSP has drilled two wells for the large-scale demonstration project project.
Cropland Field WorkMontana State University researchers working with BSCSP evaluated the capacity for croplands and rangelands to sequester carbon in their soils, a process known as terrestrial carbon capture and storage.
Seismic "Vibroseis" TrucksSeismic "Vibroseis" trucks, also known as "Thumper" trucks, release vibrations that emit sound waves and help retrieve valuable data regarding the geology underground, as shown here at the Basalt Wallula project site.
Basalt Well SiteDrilling the well for the small-scale basalt project was initiated on January 14, 2009 and concluded on August 6, 2009. Total well depth reached 4,110 feet.
Media outreachBSCSP coordinates with partners to host public events, media announcements, and other outreach opportunities, such as this press event announcing the start of CO2 injection at the Basalt Wallula project.
Basalt Injection ProjectIn July 2013, researchers with BSCSP started injected 1,000 tons of CO2 into a deep underground basalt formation, part of the in small-scale demonstration project in Wallula, WA.
