CO2CRC’s storage research program is strongly supported by field testing, validation and demonstration using the Otway International Test Centre. The research delivers effective technologies and methodologies for commercial CO2 storage developers and operators.

Otway Stage 3 Project: Next Generation CCUS Monitoring (Stage 3)

CO2CRC’s Otway Stage 3 M&V Project will develop and commercialise next generation subsurface M&V technologies. These technologies, explained in the video below provide on-demand, permanent monitoring solutions…

Surface-based seismic monitoring of CO2 stored in a deep saline formation (Stage 2C)

CO2 storage sites require ongoing monitoring and verification (M&V) so we can understand the behavior of the CO2 plume and provide assurance of storage complex integrity. Seismic data can detect variations in the elastic properties…

Residual saturation and dissolution test (Stage 2B)

Injected CO2 will change in response to the nature of a storage formation – moving from free-phase to dissolved and eventually to mineralised…
