Carbon capture and storage: an approach to understanding potential risks and their cost implications
1st October 2012
This analysis is intended to help industry make informed investment decisions, to be useful in the further development of laws and regulations governing CCS, and to better inform the public in whose communities CCS projects may be operated. This analysis will also be useful in considering policies to address the long-term stewardship of CO2 in geologic formations. CCS projects are longlived. In a typical large project, CO2 injection might take place over a 30–50 year horizon and the CO2 must stay securely in the formation for much longer.
