Eric Amundsen and Bob Sirianni to Speak about Monitoring Protocols for Carbon Capture and Storage at CCUS 2023

Eric Amundsen (Massachusetts) and Bob Sirianni, PG, (Texas) will present “Comparison of Pre-Injection, Operational, and Post-Injection Monitoring Requirements Between Federal and State Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Protocols and their Potential Impact on Project Schedule and Implementation Cost” at the Carbon, Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) 2023 conference at the University of Houston Cullen Performance Center in Houston, Texas, on April 25 through 27, 2023. Anica Haynes (Louisiana) will also attend the conference.

Eric Amundsen is a Senior Consultant focused on energy transition, life-cycle assessment, sustainability, and environmental policy. He supports organizations as they address their energy transition and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals, helping them to identify, manage, and report on the opportunities and risks associated with the shift to a lower-carbon economy.

Bob Sirianni is a Senior Geologist with expertise in three-dimensional subsurface modeling and data analysis. He transitioned from a career in O&G to serve as a consultant, and recently served as assistant project manager supporting subsurface permitting for a confidential CCUS project.

Anica Haynes is a Senior Principal Environmental Permitting and Planning Practice Lead with more than 20 years of experience focused on technical and project management, primarily in the chemical, energy, industrial, and manufacturing sectors.

Addressing the technical and business aspects of carbon capture, utilization, and storage, CCUS 2023 will highlight current projects and challenges, including the following: subsurface geologic storage and site selection, CO2-enhanced hydrocarbon recovery and utilization, reservoir modeling monitoring and risk assessment, case studies, industry applications, economics, incentives, and policy, infrastructure, stakeholder engagement, and machine learning and data analytics.


The U.S. federal government and the state of California each provide an incentive program for CCS projects. Planning for a CCS project involves understanding the interplay between each program’s requirements, since it is possible to take advantage of both programs simultaneously. While the monitoring, reporting, and verification requirements of the two programs significantly overlap, notable differences exist. At the CCUS Conference at the University of Houston, Eric Amundsen and Bob Sirianni will describe similarities and important differences between the two programs’ monitoring, reporting, and verification requirements, as well as how the differences can affect cost and schedule.
