CO2 Stored History
The CO2 Stored database was originally developed in the UK Storage Appraisal Project (UK SAP).
The United Kingdom Storage Appraisal Project (UKSAP) was commissioned and funded by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) to provide a comprehensive, auditable and defensible estimate of UK CO2 storage capacity.
The project was executed by a consortium of academic, public and private sector organisations, comprising:
- The British Geological Survey (BGS)
- Durham University
- Element Energy Limited
- GeoPressure Technology Limited (GPT, an Ikon Science company)
- Geospatial Research Limited (GRL)
- Heriot Watt University
- Imperial College London (ICL)
- RPS Energy Limited
- Senergy Limited
- University of Edinburgh (UoE)
Primary suppliers of data to the project were:
- Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC)
- IHS Energy Limited
- Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS)
The project ran for almost two years and provided the UK's first comprehensive, auditable and defensible estimate of CO2 storage capacity in offshore geological formations.
