Department of Conservation Geologic Sequestration of CO 2 in California Department of Conservation California Geological Survey (CGS) Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) Office of Technology Services (OTS) California Geological Survey CGS develops and disseminates technical information and advice on Californias geology, geologic hazards, and mineral resources. California Geology Important Faults in California Earthquake Shaking Studies Combine earthquake data with basic geologic data to model areas likely to experience strong ground shaking. Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources DOGGR provides for the prudent development of hydrocarbon and geothermal resources through the application of sound engineering and regulatory practices. Office of Technology Services OTS provides technical support, system administration, application development, and advanced mapping applications to all DOC divisions. DOCs role in the Partnership The CGS, in cooperation with DOGGR, will make a preliminary evaluation of the potential for geologic sequestration of CO 2 in California. The OTS will act as a clearinghouse for digital reports and data for the Partnership.
