About the Committee

From time to time, CSRC needs volunteers. CSRC maintains a list of SPE members interested in volunteering that CSRC subcommittee chairs use to recruit new members. Please submit the application if you are interested in adding your name and credentials to the CSRC volunteer list.  Once you have successfully been nominated, you will receive an automated email acknowledging that CSRC has your name.  You will not receive any other email unless a subcommittee chair contacts you directly. CSRC will keep your name on the volunteer list. Thank you for your interest in volunteering for CSRC!
The CSRC is responsible for matters related to estimating, classifying, categorizing, and reporting CO2 storage resources in the context of the CO2 Storage Resources Management System 

The CSRC has twelve to sixteen 
SPE members with experience in CO2 storage, natural gas storage, or resource classification. Members are appointed for three-year terms but are not limited to three years of service.

Members’ Qualifications and Experience

  • Must be an SPE member, unless appointed by an observing organization
  • Must have experience in CO2 storage, natural gas storage, or resource classification

Members’ Expected Contribution

  • Participate in monthly virtual meetings
  • Review documents between meetings
  • Make original writing contributions
  • Participation on subcommittees may be required

CSRC Responsibilities

  • Maintains SPE’s SRMS and SRMS Guidelines
  • Develops SRMS training materials
  • Disseminates SRMS information to SPE membership, professional organizations, agencies, and companies involved in the use of SRMS
  • Cooperates with SPE committees (e.g., the OGRC and CCUS TS) and external organizations in the development and delivery of relevant initiatives
  • Liaises with other organizations in efforts to achieve worldwide use of SRMS
  • Monitors SRMS activities of other organizations and reports to the SPE Board on these matters
  • Provides periodic reports to the SPE Board and Technical Committee on SRMS issues

Review of SRMS and SRMS Guidelines

The CSRC will ensure that the SRMS and supplemental materials are current and represent industry-recommended practices. The frequency of revisions will need to balance their efficacy, the need for stakeholders to have stability in their application, and the degree of effort required to update and communicate changes. The situation must be avoided where continual updates to the documents results in too frequent restating or re-classifying of resources. The definitions included in the SRMS represent a set of values or principles that should not be readily changed. Nevertheless, the committee should conduct a review every five years.
