Regional Partnerships

Page 3: Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships…

Baseline region for sources and sinks

Address regulatory, environmental, outreach issues

Establish monitoring and verification protocols

Validating sequestration technology & infrastructure Phase 1 – Planning

Phase 2 – Proof of Concepts

Determine benefits of sequestration to region

Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships Developing Infrastructure for Wide-Scale Deployment

These partnerships - 4 to 10 across the country, each made up of private industry, universities, and state and local governments - will become the centerpiece of our sequestration program. They will help us determine the technologies, regulations, and infrastructure that are best suited for specific regions of the country.

Major Sequestration Issues…

Health, safety, and environmental risks

Permanence and large-scale verification

Capacity evaluation


Uncertain regulatory frameworks

Protocols for identifying amenable storage sites

Direct CO2 storage

Enhanced natural sinks

Page 7: Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships…

Requirements for Sequestration:

Environmentally acceptable No legacy for future generations Respect existing ecosystems

Safe No sudden large-scale CO2


Verifiable Ability to verify amount of CO2


Economically viable

Partnership Program has a Two-Phased Approach…

Current Phase I (Planning) 7 Projects 18-24 months ~$1.5 million per project Overall ~ 40% cost share 2 exceed 50% cost share

Proposed Phase II (Proof-of-Concepts)

- about 8 years duration - up to about $4 million/year-project - 20% cost share (minimum)

Phase II of Regional Partnerships NB: Details Still Under Development

Tasks Perform proof-of-concept field tests for

technology & infrastructure concepts Establish, implement, and refine:

Measurement, monitoring & verification protocols Accounting, regulatory & liability action plans

Continue characterization efforts Implement outreach mechanisms Assessment of regional feasibility and

integration of components

General Phase II Characteristics… Scale: Dependent upon FY05 appropriations; current

planning is for each selected Partnership to be funded at about $4M/year, but subject to actual appropriations and other programmatic considerations.

Cost Share: As the contractual instrument will most likely be Financial Assistance (Cooperative Agreement), there will be a cost share requirement as there was in Phase I; anticipated to be at least 20% but not finalized as of this time.

Duration: Expected to be on order of about 8 years; subject to budgets, programmatic needs, and other considerations.

Not a “more study” focus; Focus on implementing plans; drilling and other tangible efforts expected.

Draft Phase II RFP…

At this point in time, the actual details of the RFP in terms of required tasks, specifications, and evaluation criteria have not been finalized; RFP is currently a work in progress…

…having said that: RFP anticipated to be issued January 2005 Applications anticipated to be due to DOE-NETL in

March-April 2005 timeframe Selections and Awards are planned to be made by

the end of FY05 (August-September 2005)
