ULTimateCO2 : A FP7 European Project dedicated to the understanding of the long term fate of geologically stored CO2

Abstract

The European Commission has selected the ULTimateCO2 project for funding under its FP7 R&D 2011 program. ULTimateCO2 will assess the long-term CO2 storage behaviour in terms of efficiency and security. The project is dedicated to studying the main physical processes needed to develop a better, quantitative understanding of the long-term geological storage of CO2, namely: (i) reservoir trapping mechanisms, (ii) sealing integrity of fractured and faulted caprock, and (iii) leakage through interfaces in the well vicinity. The research programme will comprise laboratory experiments, numerical modelling application and development, field data implementation and review of natural and industrial analogue evidence. Close collaboration with the NER300 candidates and EEPR demonstration sites will underpin all investigation with relevant supply of data industrial context. ULTimateCO2 will define a set of recommendations that will enable both regulators and operators to demonstrate that site specific long-term site performance will lead to permanent and safe CO2 containment. This will enable robust storage and allow clear conditions to be established for post-closure liability transfer.
