This is a pilot-scale project that involves transport and injection of approximately 100,000 tons of carbon dioxide (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 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 in Australia.
Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its Paris meeting in March 2007.
