Abstract

Carbon dioxide is the main compound identified as affecting the stability of the Earth's climate. A significant reduction in the volume of greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere is a key mechanism for mitigating against climate change. Geological storage of CO2, or the injection and stabilization of large volumes of CO2 in the subsurface in saline aquifers, existing hydrocarbon reservoirs or unmineable coal-seams, is one of the more technologically advanced options available. A number of studies have been carried out aimed at understanding the behaviour and long term fate of CO2 when stored in geological formations.
