Illinois Basin Geologic Data Compilation to Support Utilization and Storage of Carbon and Energy Gases The U.S. Geological Survey Energy and Minerals Science Center is conducting research on the potential for utilization and storage of energy-related gases (CO2, hydrogen, coal mine methane, compressed air) and fluids (produced brines) in subsurface geologic reservoirs. Characterization and assessment of suitable subsurface storage zones requires diverse datasets to evaluate storage capacity, containment, and long-term viability of these reservoirs. The USGS has identified the Illinois Basin as a key focus area for this project. Western Kentucky is located in the Illinois Basin, and the Kentucky Geological Survey (KGS) maintains extensive geologic and geophysical databases compiled from drilling and mining records, and prior research programs. These data are required for USGS to conduct its energy storage research and assessment. USGS is seeking assistance in compiling, organizing and receiving KGS datasets relevant to this program. This service project will provide requested existing datasets to USGS.
