Abstract

A major concern when storing CO2 in geological formations is the sealing efficiency of lowpermeable sequences overlying potential storage reservoirs. The long-term integrity of these sealing layers (caprocks) is a prerequisite to maintain CO2 in place and avoid dissipative loss to the atmosphere. Such leakage will occur either by capillary leakage, via diffusion or through existing or induced faults and fractures The assessment of leakage risks and leakage rates, considering different potential mechanisms, is therefore an important issue for site approval and public acceptance.
