Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) has been recognized as a promising option for dealing with emissions from fossil fuel combustion to decrease the release of CO2 into the atmosphere. Through the CCS process CO2 is first separated from flue gases, then it is compressed and transported to the storage site, and finally it is injected into deep underground geologic formations (Benson, 2005; CO2 Capture Project, 2009). The geologic formations that offer secure and long‐term potential for the storage of large amounts of CO2 are gas and oil reservoirs that are depleted or...
