NOTE - Registration Requirements: As part of theDepartment?s implementationof e-Government, WE ARE REQUIRING THE SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS THROUGHGRANTS.GOV. There are several one-time actions you must complete in ordertosubmit an application through Grants.gov (e.g., obtain a Dun and BradstreetData Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, register with the CentralContractor Registration (CCR), register with the credential provider andregister with Grants.gov). You must complete all the one-time actions in?GetStarted? at www.Grants.gov prior to submitting your initial application.APPLICANTS, WHO ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH CCR AND GRANTS.GOV, SHOULD ALLOW ATLEAST 14 DAYS TO COMPLETE THESE REQUIREMENTS. It is suggested that theprocessbe started as soon as possible.Area of Interest 07 - Advancements in Assessment of Geological ReservoirsforCO2 SequestrationCarbon dioxide is the major anthropogenic greenhouse gas in the present-dayatmosphere, and is a critical component in models of global climate change.CO2 sequestration in geological reservoirs, including depleted oil and gasreservoirs, unminable coal seams, and deep saline formations, is beingevaluated as a viable means of long-term CO2 storage and climate changemitigation. It is estimated that geologic storage will hold hundreds tothousands of gigatons of carbon. Fundamental and exploratory research isneeded to improve our understanding of the physical and chemical processesinvolved in geologic storage of CO2. Advancements are needed for improvedassessment of geological reservoirs for CO2 storage and for seals/caprocksthatserve as containment. Reservoir and seal/caprock assessment studies canbeused to address regulatory, public acceptance, economic, and environmentalandsafety issues, for example, provide estimates of storage capacity andpredictlong-term CO2 fate. Grant applications are sought for fundamental andexploratory research that will lead to improved assessment of CO2reservoirsand seals/caprock by: (1) novel approaches to predict CO2 movement anddistribution in the reservoir during injection and post-injection (e.g.hydrological, geochemical, geomechanical, and thermal reservoir properties,reservoir simulation); (2) innovative research focused on the trappingmechanisms for CO2 in the reservoir (e.g. solubility (the dissolution ofCO2into fluids), mineral trapping (the reaction of CO2 with minerals presentinthe host rock to form stable, solid compounds like carbonates), residualgastrapping, and physical trapping (e.g. permeability barrier); (3) innovativestudies to quantify reservoir CO2 storage capacity (e.g. effects of gastrapping, reservoir volume); and (4) advanced research approaches tocharacterize seals/caprock with emphasis on studying the geomechanical andgeochemical effects of CO2 on the seals/caprock (e.g. structure, geometry,sedimentology, mineralogy, mechanical properties, transport and sealingproperties, and caprock-water-CO2 chemical reaction), and studies ofseal/caprock integrity and leakage (e.g. diffusion of CO2 dissolved,capillarytransport of CO2 through pore system, multiphase migration throughfractures/microfractures).To link to the master announcement DE-PS26-05NT42472-00, please click thefollowing link:https://e-center.doe.gov/iips/faopor.nsf/UNID/AFDC3E3018D30D1C8525700C005DB010?OpenDocument
