Ketzin Test Site Project (formerly CO2 SINK) (Project Completed)
Nominators: European Commission (lead) and Germany
This is a pilot-scale project that tested and evaluated CO2 capture and storage at an existing natural gas storage facility and in a deeper land-based saline formation. A key part of the project was monitoring the migration characteristics of the stored CO2. The project was successful in advancing understanding of the science and practical processes involved in underground storage of CO2 and provided real case experience for use in development of future regulatory frameworks for geological storage of CO2.
Recognized by the CSLF at its Melbourne meeting, September 2004
