Final Report - CO2SINK (In-situ R&D Laboratory for Geological Storage of CO2)

Project ID: 502599
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the CO2SINK pilot project, which aimed for a better understanding of geological carbon dioxide (CO2) storage in a saline aquifer. The main focus of the project was the development and testing of monitoring techniques. Furthermore, CO2SINK served as a test site for CO2 injection and safety measures.

The report begins with an introduction to the project background and objectives and provides an executive summary of the work performed and the results obtained. It later goes into detail about the setup of the experiments, the models developed and used and dissemination efforts. Finally, there is reference to future research programs, as inspired by the work done under CO2SINK.
