Ian Duncan is the Program Leader of the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) at the University of Texas at Austin.
A biographical note states that Duncan "leads the Earth Systems and Environment group at BEG. For the last 4 years Ian has been working on policy, as well as legal and technical aspects of carbon management in the context of CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery and sequestration in brine reservoirs. Ian was the geologic sequestration lead for the FutureGen Texas Team and in this role was responsible for putting together the Environmental Information Volume (EIV) that formed the basis for ES for the two Texas FutureGen sites. Ian has given numerous talks at national conferences on gasification technologies and CO2 sequestration, as well as sequestration as a part of EOR. Ian currently has research interests in science-based regulatory frameworks for CO2 sequestration, geomechanical and fluid-flow modeling of faults and seals in engineered brine reservoirs, and risk assessment for CO2. Ian is the Co-PI of a $38-million DOE-funded project to study 1 million tons/year CO2 injection into the water leg of an EOR project at Cranfield field, Mississippi."
