CO2STORE (Project Completed)
Nominators: Norway (lead) and European Commission
This project, a follow-on to the Sleipner project, involved the monitoring of CO2 migration (involving a seismic survey) in a saline formation beneath the North Sea and additional studies to gain further knowledge of geochemistry and dissolution processes. There were also several preliminary feasibility studies for additional geologic settings of future candidate project sites in Denmark, Germany, Norway, and the UK. The goal was to develop sound scientific methodologies for the assessment, planning, and long-term monitoring of underground CO2 storage, both onshore and offshore. The project began in February 2003 and ended in 2006.
Recognized by the CSLF at its Melbourne meeting, September 2004
