Speaker: Ali Tura, Colorado School of Mines

For this presentation, I will start with going over the forces requiring global carbon reduction. CO2 molecules have been released into the atmosphere during most of the industrial revolution and earlier. So why is there such an urgency at this time? I discuss two key reasons: Public opinion and Technological changes. I will then discuss the energy transition and the key role of carbon sequestration. Next, I will discuss the economics of different carbon capture and sequestration options and show why enhanced oil recovery related sequestration can be an optimal solution. This can potentially form the best path for the energy industry and a reasonably well posed problem for geological and geophysical long-term storage and monitoring.
