Recognized by the CSLF at its Berlin meeting in September 2005, this multifaceted project will develop the tools, technologies, techniques and management systems required to cost-effectively demonstrate, safe, secure, and verifiable CO2 storage in conjunction with commercial natural gas production. The goals of the project are to develop a detailed dataset on the performance of CO2 storage; provide a field-scale example on the verification and regulation of geologic storage systems; test technology options for the early detection of low-level seepage of CO2 out of primary containment; evaluate monitoring options and develop guidelines for an appropriate and cost-effective, long-term monitoring methodology; and quantify the interaction of CO2 re-injection and hydrocarbon production for long-term storage in oil and gas fields.
