Stefan Bachu is senior advisor for Energy and Carbon Management Geoscience in the Alberta Geological Survey, Alberta Energy and Utilities Board. During his career, he has been involved in various research activities related to the subsurface flow of fluids and heat, with application to the Western Canada sedimentary basin. For more than a decade, Stefan has focused his efforts on the potential for CO2 storage in geological media in Alberta as a mitigation strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Because of his expertise in this emerging field, Stefan was appointed lead author and contributed to chapter 5 on CO2 Geological Storage of the IPCC Special Report on CO2 Capture and Storage. In 2004, Stefan served on the CO2 Task Force of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission and currently is a member of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Strategic Project Grants Panel for Greenhouse Gas Mitigation and also represents Canada on the Technical Group of the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum. Stefan holds advanced degrees in water resources, hydrogeology, and transport processes.
Matthias Grobe is a geologist and leader of the Acid Gas and CO2 Storage Section at the Alberta Geological Survey of the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board. He received his M.Sc. degree in geology from the University of Tübingen, Germany, and his Ph.D. in geology from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, with a focus on the sedimentology and diagenesis of carbonate rocks. He considers geoscience data and knowledge as key components for the assessment of the suitability, capacity, and safety of geological storage options. Matt has been an associate editor for the journal Environmental Geosciences for several years and is currently a member of the Division of Environmental Geosciences Advisory Board.
