Susan Hovorka, a geologist and carbon-sequestration expert at the University of Texas at Austin, says in certain conditions water deep below the surface could flow across the carbonate crystals and dissolve out the CO2, allowing the gas to possibly seep to the surface. Testing will be needed, she notes, to determine how well basalt will retain the carbon.

SACROC, begun in 1972 in Scurry County, is the earliest, large-scale project using carbon dioxide to tap into oil, Susan Hovorka, a research scientist studying carbon dioxide sequestration, said in an interview.

There are about 100 such projects in the United States, many going on for decades, said Hovorka, co-founder of the Gulf Coast Carbon Center, which is part of the University of Texas at Austin's Bureau of Economic Geology.
"They have very good public acceptance, very good safety records," Hovorka said.
She said the center's research has shown the carbon dioxide stays where it's injected 5,000 to 10,000 feet underground.
Scientists have detected small leakages over short distances, such as 40 feet above an injection site, she said.
Two of her colleagues did a multiyear study at the Scurry County site because of concerns groundwater there had been damaged.
"The answer's clearly no. The water's fine," Hovorka said.
The center's funding sources include industry sponsors such as power companies, vendors and potential carbon dioxide users like oil and gas companies, as well as the U.S. Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency and the state of Texas, she said.
