Opportunity: DE-FOA-0000732


DE-FOA-0000732, Novel Sensing and Monitoring Technologies for Subsurface Detection of CO2 The objective of this activity is to competitively solicit projects in novel technologies under the Crosscutting Research Program Area to support DOE Strategic Goals. This work will target advancements in subsurface monitoring technologies that will facilitate the injection and storage of CO2, thus contributing to the emission reduction of CO2 from fossil fuel based electric/industrial sources. The overall goal of the Department of Energy¿s (DOE¿s) programs have been to develop and advance technologies that will significantly improve the efficacy of the geologic carbon storage monitoring technologies, reduce the cost of implementation, and be ready for widespread commercial deployment between 2020 and 2030. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) complements a primary objective of the DOE¿s Carbon Storage Program: to ensure 99% permanence through the monitoring, measurements, and accounting for CO2 injected in the geologic formations. Having tools that are able to withstand the harsh conditions in these deep geologic formations and operate over decades of the projects lifecycle are a critical technology gap. Project developers will be required to deploy monitoring tools which can determine the location of the CO2 plume, boundaries of elevated formation pressure, and monitor leaks around a well bore or natural feature such as a fault or fracture. In addition, projects will be faced with the challenge of minimizing the risk when new monitoring tools are integrated into project monitoring plans. These robust sensors could also be used to optimize the performance of the storage and injection operations when integrated into a field scale monitoring system. This is a limited field of work with some companies offering similar technologies developed for the oil and gas industry, but not for the specific application to long-term CO2 storage projects, as required by
