In Salah CO2 Storage JIP: site selection, management, field development plan and monitoring overview

1st September 2010

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery

This paper presents information on the Joint Industry Project (JIP) established to monitor CO2 storage at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. Site selection was guided by the standard oil-industry Capital Value Process (CVP).  After four years of injection and monitoring, a Quantified Risk Assessment (QRA) was performed to update the development plan. Monitoring included satellite facilitated measurements of surface deformation, as well as conventional oilfield technologies.
