SLR gathered all publicly available geological data covering all the jurisdictions of the Baltic Sea ; Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Poland and Russia, organised it in GIS for a shared FTP site. Basins and geological structures were being ranked for CO2 storage suitability. Potential storage locations were identified and static reservoir models developed.
The objective was to establish the theoretical CO2 storage capacity within sedimentary rocks in the southern Baltic Sea
Data gathering, integration into GIS, and geological interpretation. Reservoir modelling; capacity calculations hydrodynamic modelling.
