A Framework for Certification and Operation of CO2 Geological Storage Sites

CO2 Capture Project

A policy position paper on principles for CO2 Storage Site Certification. Widespread deployment of CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) will require standards and criteria to provide assurance of the long-term security of CO2 Geological Storage (CGS). This paper describes several technical criteria that could be employed in a framework for certification and operation of CGS sites. The oil and gas industry has over a century of experience of managing various high-pressure fluids in deep geological formations. This paper builds on that extensive knowledge base and outlines some high-level technical criteria that would be specifically applicable to CGS sites.
