CO2CRC Otway Project
Nominators: Australia (lead) and United States
Recognized by the CSLF at its Paris meeting in March 2007, this is a pilot-scale project that involves transport and injection of approximately 100,000 tons of CO2 into a depleted natural gas well over a two year period. Besides the operational aspects of processing, transport and injection of a CO2-containing gas stream, the project also includes development and testing of new and enhanced monitoring, and verification of storage (MMV) technologies, modeling of post-injection CO2 behavior, and implementation of an outreach program for stakeholders and nearby communities.
Data from the project will be used in developing a future regulatory regime for CO2 capture and storage (CCS) in Australia.
