About the Carbon Capture and Sequestration Committee
SPE formed the Carbon Capture and Sequestration Committee in 2007 to ensure that CCS is adequately covered in all SPE programs and to provide engineering expertise to the development of CCS technologies, standards, and regulations. The committee works within five subgroups:
- Relationships With Other Organizations
- Capacity Building
Current major initiatives include the following:
Establishment of a Geologic Resources Management Committee
The SPE Board of Directors recently approved formation of a committee to work with other professional societies to develop a classification framework for geologic storage. The Committee is assisting with the formation of this committee, which will include some of its members.
Carbon Management Project
Members of the CCS Committee are participating in a joint project with the United Engineering Founder Societies to bring together the combined engineering expertise of all the societies to identify practical steps toward managing greenhouse gas emissions.
