Screening and selection criteria, and characterisation techniques for the geological sequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2)

S. Bachu,     Alberta Innovates – Technology Futures, Canada


Potential sites for the geological sequestration of CO2 must be subject to a systematic screening process. The chapter covers fundamental site selection criteria (capacity and injectivity; safety and reliability; compatibility with other energy, mineral and water resources; regulatory and other societal requirements), site characterisation (geology; hydrogeological, pressure and geothermal regimes; land features; location, climate and access) as well as future planning (predicting the fate and effects of the injected CO2; site design, permitting, ...
