Task 2 - Field Testing of Emerging Technologies

This task is leveraging research conducted under previous funding cycles by taking newly developed or existing monitoring technologies and improving them. The specific aim is to develop technologies to improve reservoir storage efficiency while ensuring containment effectiveness. Researchers are deploying or will be deploying these technologies at several CCS (and non-CCS) project sites for testing. The project sites include: Otway, Australia; Aquistore, Canada; the Carbon Management Canada site; and Mont Terri Underground Research Lab, Switzerland. At the start of the project, the currently deployed technologies (at Otway and Aquistore) are undergoing testing and performing data collection. The collected data is being used to validate and verify the technologies under in-situ conditions.
