[HRE28-P02] current trends and challenges in monitoring of injected CO2 in saline aquifer storage
3-min talk in an oral session
Keywords:carbon dioxide, saline aquifer, well logging, seismic survey, trap mechanism, monitoring
Several key questions need to be answered when CO2 geological storage is to be undertaken worldwide. How should CO2 be stored underground? Can trapping be assumed in saline formations and can CO2 be retained for long periods safely in the subsurface? This presentation will give a review on CO2 monitoring carrying out at the injection sites particular in North America and also provide information on what kind of technology works well and what did not work. Pilot and demonstration CO2 injection projects provide unique data to develop economically viable, environmentally effective options for reducing carbon emissions in the near future.
