What is GeoContainment™ ?
In the pursuit of reducing global climate change, carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) have emerged as vital priorities worldwide. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is the efficient process of securely storing carbon dioxide (CO2) in underground geologic formations. Through pressurization, CO2 transforms into a liquid state, ready for injection into porous rock formations, depleted oil and gas reservoirs, saline aquifers, or bedded rock salt caverns. The success of CCUS is dependent on the reliable containment of injected CO2 within the designated storage site.
To ensure effective CO2 containment, the caprock’s seal potential is crucial. The rock layers overlying the storage formation must exhibit strength, integrity, and continuity to avoid seepage or migration of the stored carbon. BGES specializes in a comprehensive suite of services that streamline AER Directive 51 application and ensure the safety and efficiency of CCUS operations. Trust our expertise to facilitate your carbon capture and storage initiatives while adhering to regulatory requirements and industry best practices.
For carbon storage in underground caverns, we offer a full suite of technical services for the entire lifecycle of the cavern. Please refer to the Storage Cavern page for more details.
