24th January 2012

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage, Health safety and environment

This study aimed at identifying and reviewing monitoring methods which have so far shown the potential to quantify CO2 leakages from a geological storage site. The report primarily focuses on leaked CO2 which may reach the ground or seabed surface, i.e. the atmosphere or the water column, as defined in the EU ETS. The main body of the report presents a detailed description of the technologies that can measure CO2 leakage from potential point and/or diffuse sources, providing a detailed review of the quantification performance of these methods.
