The processes accompanying CO 2 migration or leakage through the geological seals of storage sites is an important research topic. It is exceedingly likely that intact water-saturated cap-rocks will act as capillary seals and prevent leakage of free CO 2 . However typical overburden successions contain faults and fractures and...

Yesterday, 25th February 2015, drilling commenced at CMC Research Institute 's Containment and Monitoring Institute (CaMI) and the University of Calgary's Field Research Station (FRS#1). When completed in early 2016 the field research station (FRS) will be the first of its kind in the world with injection of small volumes...
Closing date: 16:00 on 30 October 2015 NERC invites the UK energy and Earth science community to submit high-level ideas for the science capability and capacity requirements of the Energy Security & Innovation Observing System for the Subsurface (ESIOS) project. ESIOS will establish world-leading knowledge that will be applicable to...
The second Brainstorming Day on the long-term fate of geologically stored CO 2 was successfully held in Paris, France, on December 19th 2014. Specialists from the international CCS community were gathered to discuss a variety of topics such as natural analogues, leakage, mitigation and remediation, monitoring, but also public acceptance...
This week in Nature Climate Change an international team of scientists have published results of the first ever sub-sea carbon dioxide impact, detection and monitoring experiment relevant to Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) in sub-seabed storage reservoirs. This innovative study was designed to understand how marine life on the...
