01/2011 -12/ 2012
Demonstrate the application and further develop micro-seismic as a monitoring method of a CO2 storage. Sub-goal: Map seismic events in light of the CO2 injection. Explain observed seismic events by comparing with other geophysical measurements, geological data and geomechanical models. Increase the understanding of rock mechanical response due to the CO2 injection, verify the integrity of the roofing rock and assist in optimizing the CO2 injection.
