CO2 Sequestration project has 1st problem

(SHELBY) – DR. LEE SPANGLER, THE DIRECTOR OF THE CARBON SEQUESTRATION PROJECT ON THE KEVIN DOME IN NORTH TOOLE COUNTY SAYS THE PROJECT IS NOT AS FAR ALONG AS THEY HAD HOPED BY NOW.

            THAT’S DUE IN PART TO A SITUATION THAT OCCURRED FORCING SESIMIC ACTIVITY IN THE AREA TO STOP ABOUT 15 DAYS EARLIER THAN PLANNED. 

SPANGLER CALLS THE INCIDENT MORE OF A “MISCOMMUNICATION,”  THAN ANYTHING.    WHAT HAPPENED IN HIS WORDS WAS AN ARCHAEOLOGY CREW STARTED A “CULTURAL SURVEY IN ONE AREA, BUT WHEN IT STARTED TO SNOW THEY HAD TO LEAVE WITHOUT FINISHING.

SPANGLER SAYS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT WAS A SESIMC CREW CAME ALONG AND THOUGHT THE CULTURAL SURVEY WAS COMPLETED BUT IT WASN’T AND HE CONFIRMED THAT SEISMIC CREWS DROVE OVER A STONE CIRCLE AND THEN A SECOND STONE CIRCLE AND CRACKED A ROCK.

THERE IS SOME BELIEF THAT THE STONE CIRCLES WERE NATIVE AMERICAN TEEPEE RINGS BUT SPANGLER SAID HE COULD NOT CONFIRM THAT.

HE DID SAY THAT IT IS “REGRETTABLE” THAT THIS HAPPENED AND QUOTE, “WE ARE DOING WHAT WE CAN TO REMEDY IT.” 

SPANGLER SAID THE SEISMIC ACTIVITY WAS SHUT DOWN MARCH 1ST, WHEN IT COULD HAVE GONE UNTIL MARCH 15TH.

THE PROJECT IS BEING CONDUCTED TO TRY AND DEMONSTRATE THAT C02 CAN BE STORED SAFELY AND VIABLY IN REGIONAL GEOLOGIC FORMATIONS      THE CO2 IS CAPTURED AND STORED IN THE FORMATIONS AS OPPOSED TO BEING EMITTED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE.
