Figure 1: Schematic of operations at the In Salah CO2 Storage Project, Algeria. Natural gas is extracted from a gas zone formation and CO2 is separated. The separated CO2 is then injected into the water leg of the carboniferous reservoir. Image from www.insalahco2.com.
Figure 2: The liquefied natural gas plant at Melkøya, Norway (pictured) captures carbon dioxide from the production stream in sub-sea wells in the Barents Sea. CO2 is separated and transported through a dedicated pipeline back to the sub-sea reservoir as part of the Snøhvit Project.
