This is a large-scale project that will store approximately 120 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) in a water-bearing sandstone formation two kilometers below Barrow Island, off the northwest coast of Australia. The CO2 stored by the project will be extracted from natural gas being produced from the nearby Gorgon Field and injected at approximately 3.5 to 4 million tonnes per year. There is an extensive integrated monitoring plan, and the objective of the project is to demonstrate the safe commercial-scale application of greenhouse gas storage technologies at a scale not previously attempted.
Recognized by the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) at its Warsaw meeting in October 2010.
