Best practice for the storage of CO2 in saline aquifers: observations and guidelines from the SACS and CO2STORE projects
6th November 2009
Many of the research results from the SACS and CO2STORE projects are published in the scientific literature but in a somewhat disseminated form. This report aims to consolidate some of the key findings into a manual of observations and recommendations relevant to underground saline aquifer storage. The work builds upon and complements earlier best practice manuals from the SACS/SACS2 and GEO-SEQ projects (SACS, 2003; GEO-SEQ, 2004), and aims to provide technically robust guidelines for effective and safe CO2 storage in a range of geological settings. This will set the scene for companies, regulatory authorities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and ultimately the interested general public, in evaluating possible new CO2 storage projects in Europe and elsewhere.
