New international system for classifying storage resources provides further confidence in CCS
New international system for classifying storage resources provides further confidence in CCS

2nd May 2019

The theoretical capacity of carbon dioxide (CO2) storage resources has always been higher than the CO2 storage required to meet the projections of any climate change scenario. In addition, the recent IPCC Special Report cited...

Migration-assisted storage: opportunities are (almost) endless
Migration-assisted storage: opportunities are (almost) endless

18th November 2018

In the pursuit of geological CO2 storage sites, migration assisted storage (MAS) offers the largest storage resource potential and spatial availability, globally. MAS can trap and immobilise CO2 in a formation without a physical structure...
