The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) will hold their annual meeting, “Mastering the Subsurface through Technology Innovation Partnerships, and Collaboration: Carbon Storage and Oil and Natural Gas Technologies Review Meeting” August 13-16, 2018 in Pittsburgh. Researchers will present results from projects funded through DOE’s Carbon Storage and Oil and Natural Gas Programs, providing a holistic approach to understanding the subsurface through integrated, collaborative research. The meeting will provide updates and results for more than 100 DOE-sponsored projects and enhance knowledge dissemination.

A mixture of plenary, multi-topic breakout, and interactive poster sessions will provide opportunities for discussion and collaboration on subsurface research efforts, both domestic and international.

Plenary sessions will highlight:

  • Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships’ (RCSP) large-scale field projects
  • Oil and Gas field laboratories
  • CarbonSAFE field projects
  • Offshore field projects
  • Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy (FORGE)

Breakout sessions will cover diverse topic areas such as:

  • Intelligent Monitoring Systems
  • Oil and Gas Stimulation
  • Wellbore Integrity and Mitigation
  • Hydraulic Fracturing Modelling/Experiments
  • Residual Oil Zones (ROZ) and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Associated Storage
  • Offshore Storage
  • Methane Hydrate Exploration

Petroleum and climate science students, academia and industry professionals will greatly improve their understanding of the subsurface geology and engineering for the purposes of carbon storage and petroleum development. Continuing Education Units are available for registered attendees of technical sessions.

Additional information on the program can be found on the NETL website.
