National Energy Technology Laboratory. Deadline May 25, 2015.

The purpose of this FOA is to competitively solicit and award R&D projects that will meet the following Objectives: (1) advancing Intelligent Monitoring Systems (IMS) for monitoring, controlling, and optimizing CO2 injection operations. The implementation of a CCS-specific IMS should result in more efficient use of pore space, but also reduce the potential risk and provide mitigation options in real-time for Carbon Storage. And (2) advance diagnostic tools and methods capable of characterizing borehole leakage pathways or fluid flow in existing wells, and advance next-generation materials and methods for mitigating wellbore leakage.
