Strategic storage for ALIGN-CCUS European industrial clusters

The project will develop a unique CO2 storage readiness assessment protocol to enable the timely definition of CO2 storage capacity, thereby helping to reduce uncertainty about the provision of large-scale storage networks. Research will also involve enhanced characterisation of CO2 storage locations in the North Sea basin, which will support decision-making for near and mid-term infrastructure planning for different industrial clusters. Existing offshore oil and gas assets, such as pipelines, will be assessed for suitability of re-use for CO2 transport and storage.




More details and links to research outputs will be available on this page in due course.
