Project Industry: Oil Sands – Upgrading and Processing

  • Effective monitoring of long-term site stability for transparent carbon capture and storage hazard assessment

    ENSURE will demonstrate the use of microseismic monitoring for seal integrity verification for large-scale carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) projects. Microseismic events provide direct insights into CO2 migration within the storage reservoir and potential caprock integrity challenges within the overburden. This goal will be achieved by developing advanced analysis tools and comparing data, existing and…
