On June 8, 2009, the U. S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory
released a Funding Opportunity Announcement (DE-FOA 0000015) with the title, Recovery
Act: Carbon Capture and Sequestration from Industrial Sources and Innovative Concepts for
Beneficial CO2 Use.
C6 Resources (C6), an affiliate of Shell Oil Company, responded with a proposal for
Technology Area 1: Large-scale industrial carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) projects
from industrial sources. As DOE Federally Funded Research and Development Center
(FFRDC) Contractors, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LBNL) and Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory (LLNL) proposed to collaborate with C6 and perform technical
tasks, which C6 included in the C6 proposal, titled the Northern California CO2 Reduction
Project. The proposal was accepted for Phase I funding and C6 received DOE Award DE-
FE0002042. LLNL and LBNL each received Phase I funding of $200,000, directly from DOE.
The essential task of Phase I was to prepare a proposal for Phase II, which would be a five-
year, detailed technical proposal, budget, and schedule for a complete carbon capture,
transportation, and geologic storage project, with the objective of starting the injection of 1
million tons per year of industrial CO2 by the end of FY2015. LLNL and LBNL developed
technical proposals (and DOE Field Work Proposals [FWPs]) for many aspects of the geologic
testing and CO2 monitoring that were included in the C6 Phase II proposal, which C6
submitted by the deadline of April 16, 2010.
This document is the Final Report for LLNL's Phase I efforts and is presented in two
Part 1 is the complete text of the technical proposal provided to C6 by LLNL and LBNL for
inclusion in the C6 Phase II proposal. Because of space limitations, however, C6 may not have
included all of this information in their proposal. In addition to developing the proposal
presented below, LLNL's Bill Foxall and Laura Chiarmonte, in collaboration with LBNL,
undertook preliminary technical work evaluating the potential for induced seismicity in Solano
Part 2 presents technical work preformed during Phase I in the development of a
preliminary Certification Framework: Leakage Risk Assessment for CO2 Injection at the
Montezuma Hills Site, Solano County, California, co-authored by LLNL and LBNL
