In Salah Gas CO2 Storage JIP: surface gas and biological monitoring

1st September 2010

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

This paper presents information by the Joint Industry Project established to monitor CO2 storage at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria.  The authors describe the methods for measurements and surveys, and explain the results for the 2009 monitoring program. Concluding remarks note that in spite of the environmental factors and scarcity of vegetation, plant diversity is relatively high, and that soil gas data did not indicate any CO2 leakage except possibly at KB-5.
