Czech-Norwegian research project to prepare a CO2 storage pilot in the Czech Republic
26.06.2015REPP-CO2 is a Czech-Norwegian research project focusing primarily on the development of the CO2 geological storage technology in the Czech Republic through its validation by means of a pilot project in geological settings similar to possible future commercial storage sites.
The project builds on a longterm partnership between the Czech Geological Survey and IRIS. These institutes form the core of the project consortium. In total, more than 100 researchers and technicians from seven institutions are participating in the REPP-CO2 project.
The main project objectives includes some of the following:
- Assessing the selected geological structure as a possible geological storage site for a research CO2 storage pilot project
- Strengthening the Czech-Norwegian cooperation in the area of CO2 geological storage and related research and development
- Testing the methodology, procedures and criteria for the description and assessment of a planned CO2 storage complex
- Integrating existing geological, geophysical, well and reservoir knowledge into developing an upgraded geological (static) model of the storage site
