Methodologies to detect leakages from geological carbon storage sites
Geological carbon storage (GCS) has been proposed as a favorable technology to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to the atmosphere. Candidate storage formations include abandoned oil and natural gas reservoirs, un-mineable coal seams, and deep saline aquifers. The large global storage capacity and widespread occurrence of deep saline formations make them ideal repositories of large volumes of CO2, however they generally lack of data for geological characterization in comparison to oil and gas reservoirs. Thus, properties of the injected formation or the sealing formation are unknown, which ...
