As interest in CCUS accelerates, the need for CO2 storage is greater than ever. This presentation highlights key terminologies and concepts of CO2 storage, focusing on storage capacity, injectivity, and long-term containment. While these topics can be highly technical, this primer provides both a high-level overview for those new to the subject and a lower level review for engineers and geoscientists engaged in producing oil and gas projects.
Additionally, there is also an introduction to 45Q that provides a financial incentive for storage projects in the US, and the SRMS that establishes a standard for quantifying storage capacity. The key takeaway message is that the skillset of oil and gas professionals is ideally suited to developing CO2 storage sites.
