Energy Research Program
The Energy Research program investigates projects related to oil and gas exploration; carbon sequestration, utilization and storage; critical mineral exploration; and other future energy initiatives, such as hydrogen storage.
An accessible version of the documents on this site will be made available upon request. Please contact the KGS editor at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the document be made available in an accessible format.
For two decades, the Kansas Geological Survey has been investigating the state's subsurface geology and industrial infrastructure to determine the safety and viability of injecting carbon dioxide from industrial sources into underground rock formations for long-term storage and to recover hard-to-reach oil.
Online tutorials and reports developed to support further research are free for anyone to use.
