CO2 Stored Database


CO2 Stored provides access to overview data for over 500 potential CO2 storage sites around offshore UK. The data originate from the UK Storage Appraisal Project (UKSAP) which assessed the UKs CO2 storage capacity for carbon capture and storage (CCS). It is updated, validated and built on as part of The Crown Estate and BGSs ongoing development. The database includes derived data for each storage unit including: location, storage unit type, lithology, water depths, porosity, permeability, formation thickness, formation depth, pressures, and salinity. The original data was developed by the UK Storage Appraisal Project (UKSAP), which was commissioned and funded by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) . It is hosted and further developed by the British Geological Survey (BGS) and The Crown Estate .It contains derived geological data, storage estimates, risk data and economics for nearly 600 potential CO2 storage units located offshore UK. These include oil and gas reservoir and saline aquifers. Each storage unit contains information giving storage estimates, risk data and economics. For most of the data fields a minimum, most likely and maximum values are recorded. The source of the data is recorded as well as a confidence rating in the data provided.
