[HSC07-12] Incident Response Protocol for Geological CO2 Storage in Japan
Keywords:Geological CO2 Storage, Incident Response Protocol, Emergency Response Plan
We reviewed related laws, project documents and papers in Japan and other counties and then developed a framework of the IRP for geological CO2 storage in Japan. For the framework, we determined incident levels, selected incidents which may be of strong interest to local stakeholders and determined procedures for the selected incident from the viewpoint not only of technical aspects but also of social aspects. The levels and procedures were settled in line with the requirements stipulated by the marine pollution protection act, which regulates offshore geological CO2 storage in Japan.
