NATCARB Coal v1501 Archive


Other (Public Domain)

This dataset provides a single, seamless spatial database of carbon storage potentials for unmineable coal areas across the USA and parts of Canada compiled from regional datasets created by the RCSPs. Storage resource estimates are based on physically accessible CO2 storage pore volume within subsurface geologic formations, and on the assumption that the storage reservoirs are open systems in which in situ fluids will either be displaced from the injection zone or managed accordingly. Economic and regulatory constraints are not considered. These data are intended to be used as an initial assessment of potential geologic storage and are not a substitute for site-specific assessment, testing, and geologic investigation. This spatial data layer provides carbon capture and storage (CCS) project developers a starting point for further inquiry into CCS technologies aimed at reducing CO2 emissions and is intended for use by RCSPs, project developers, and governmental entities for regional- and national-scale assessments of potential CO2 storage resources in the United States and parts of Canada.
