Investigations of alleged CO2 leakage in Weyburn, Canada in the context of longer term surface gas monitoring

Abstract

The Weyburn oilfield in SE Saskatchewan, Canada has been in production for more than 50 years. A CO 2 flood was started in 2000 to enhance oil recovery. The gas is piped from a coal gasification plant across the U S border in North Dakota. In addition to boosting oil production it is expected that about 30 million tonnes of CO 2 will be permanently stored in the reservoir, at a depth of about 1400 m, by the end of the 30 year lifetime of the project.
