CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 2: knowledge about environmental impact
2nd April 2015
The objective of this study is to document current knowledge, hazards and risks on environmental impacts in a possible future CCS project in the offshore Baltic Sea Area. Another purpose is to also present a tentative EIA work plan for a field trial project as scoped out in Chapter 2. Further, the intention is to add new knowledge, if possible, to what is already known or applicable to CCS activities in the offshore Baltic Sea Area.
Yggdrasil Miljömanagement AB, together with panaware ab, were commissioned by Elforsk AB to document current knowledge about environmental impacts in the light of a possible CCS field trial project in the offshore Baltic Sea Area. This report is part of the project Bastor2 (Baltic Storage of CO2), with the overriding objective to assess the opportunities and conditions for CO2 sequestration in the region. The project, which ran from June 2012 through September 2014, was financed by the Swedish Energy Agency and the Global CCS Institute in collaboration with a number of Swedish industrial and energy companies.
