Current federal energy policy assumes that hydrocarbons will continue to be the primary source of energy for the United States and the world well into the 21st century. However, there is concern about increasing atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and its possible role in global climate change. For this reason, it may become necessary to manage anthropogenic CO2. Sequestering CO2 in geological reservoirs may be one way to safely sequester carbon over long periods of time, if the proper tools to analyze the geological feasibility as well as the associated costs can be developed.nd understanding the technical, economic, social, and environmental challenges of CO2 sequestration.
