$10m project to store CO2 underground in China

CSIRO Media Release – 7 July 2010
Ref 10/93
Preparing a gas sample for carbon isotopic analysis. Isotopic and chemical tracers are used in a comprehensive monitoring and verification program to verify the secure containment of injected carbon dioxide. CSIRO researchers integrate laboratory experimentation and novel numerical modelling to improve the management of gas production from coal seam reservoirs.

CSIRO's Michael Camilleri examines a coal core sample. Coal samples are analysed to determine the properties of coal affecting the geological and geochemical behaviour of CO2 injected into coal seams CSIRO's team of researchers use advanced reservoir modelling to simulate the profile of injected carbon dioxide plumes deep underground.
