As we continue to use fossil fuels for our energy supply, the concentration of CO2 in the Earth’s atmosphere is likely to continue to increase. It has been shown that this is correlated with an increase in the temperature of the atmosphere and potential associated climate change. To mitigate this problem, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been mooted over the past decade. In this chapter, we will focus on CO2 storage in downhole rock formations. Rock formations suitable for storage include saline aquifers and depleted oil and gas reservoirs. Also coal bed methane (CBM) reservoirs may be...
