The Southern Adriatic Sea is one of the five prospective areas for CO 2 storage, being evaluated under the three-year European SiteChar project dedicated to the characterisation of European CO2 storage sites (FP7).

Abstract

The Southern Adriatic Sea is one of the five prospective areas for CO 2 storage, being evaluated under the three-year European SiteChar project dedicated to the characterisation of European CO2 storage sites (FP7). Among two onshore projects, a gas reservoir in Poland and a sandstone aquifer in Denmark, and two offshore projects in the UK North Sea and Mid Norway, the Southern Adriatic Sea is probably one of the most challenging site in the SiteChar project, due to the fact that the potential reservoir is represented by a carbonate formation. The main objective of this study is to build a structural model of potential reservoir-caprock systems in carbonate formations, suitable for CO2 storage in the Southern Adriatic Sea. The building of the 3D geological model plays a key role since it represents the starting point for further evaluation in the application of the CO2 Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) techniques in this area
