Zoback and Gorelick paper: unreliable conclusions

3rd August 2012

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

The CO2Geonet Network of Excellence, based on extensive studies and scientific literature on CO2 geological storage including seismic risk, states that the technology can be deployed in a safe and efficient manner to reduce CO2 emissions. They support the importance of a thorough research for each location in order to determine whether it is suitable for CO2 storage, both from a safety perspective and from the climate issue. Although Zoback and Gorelick describe a process that may eventually lead to the release of CO2, this and many other scenarios all form an integral part of any correct geological storage site-selection process.
