Title: A Field Demonstration of an Active Reservoir Pressure Management through Fluid Injection and Displaced Fluid Extraction at the Rock Springs Uplift a Priority Geologic CO 2 Storage Site for Wyoming

Here, the University of Wyoming is partnered with Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Battelle, and Water system Specialists Inc. to carry out a DOE funded brine extraction storage test (BEST) project at the Rock Springs Uplift (RSU), southwest Wyoming. The BEST projects are envisioned using a two-phased approach. The initial phase is to predict and monitor the differential pressure and injected fluid movement, and manage changes in formation pressure, and to develop a test-bed for deploying treatment technologies for extracted brines.
