Geologic Storage of CO2: Lessons Learned
Sally Benson et al, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
This report was completed by the Earth Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, USA. It is a large and comprehensive study of existing, published data.
The study gathers and interprets relevant information on assessing, managing and mitigating risks associated with the deep geologic storage of CO2. The study highlights a number of similar activities (geologic gas storage etc) as well as naturally occurring analogs (volcanic activity and geologic hydrocarbon reservoirs) for the deep geologic storage of CO2. Lessons learned are described, and the report recommends further work in the areas of risk assessment, management and mitigation.
