    Dear SPE members,

    Hope you are all doing well, and recovering from the tough year we already have. Considering most of the city based members have not got back to work at full capacity before the end of the year, we have decided to hold a virtual social quiz to end 2020.

    The session will be held through Zoom On Wednesday the 9th of December at 5 pm. This would give everyone to have a virtual social catch up and enjoy an online Quiz. Please RSVP by Monday the 7th of December. The link to participate in the session and further details will be provided to you once you RSVP’d.

    Kind regards and hope to see you all next Wednesday.

    And wish you a Merry Christmas and safe holidays for those who we don't see.

    Abstract:

    An economy-wide assessment has identified 60 Mt/yr of emissions, or 15% of overall emissions, where can play an essential role in achieving California's goal of carbon neutrality by 2045. Source-sink matching, together with technoeconomic analysis of optimal pipeline routing, shows that a combination collocated storage and storage hubs would best serve the state's needs. Despite the large potential for CCUS and seemingly attractive incentives for CCUS, interviews with prospective developers reveals that an uncertain policy environment and complex regulatory regime is limiting investment in CCUS projects. A comprehensive set of recommendations are provided for overcoming these challenges and scaling up CCUS in California.

    Biography:

    Sally M. Benson was the co-director of Stanford University's Precourt Institute for Energy until September 2020. She is a professor in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering. Benson studies technologies and pathways to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including geologic storage of CO2 deep underground and energy systems analysis for a low-carbon future.

    Before joining Stanford in 2007, Benson worked at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. She was division director for Earth Sciences, associate laboratory director for Energy Sciences and, finally, Berkeley Lab’s deputy director.

    Benson is on the board of directors for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Climate Central. She also serves on several advisory boards, including for Argonne National Laboratory, Princeton’s Carbon Mitigation Initiative and the Lahore University of Management Science in Pakistan.
