Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration (CCS) represents a potentially viable means by
which the electric power generation industry will be able to meet pending standards for carbon emissions.
Optimizing the benefits of CCS will rest on the ability of utilities to capture and sequester large
volumes of CO2 in viable subsurface reservoirs. With broader acceptance of CCS as an effective means
of mitigating climate change, IEc consultants are uniquely positioned to be able to support private and
public sector stakeholders as they respond to public policy, legislative, and regulatory decisions
surrounding the climate change debate.
> Valuation of Potential Risks Arising from a Model, Commercial-Scale CCS Project Site
With support from industry, government, and the environmental community, IEc developed and tested a model
approach for estimating and valuing the risks arising from a well-sited and well-managed CCS project.
- Design and implementation of risk-based probabilistic modeling tools;
- Economic analysis involving claims related to property value diminution; and
- Financial analysis related to financial responsibility and long-term liability.
