    This chapter outlines different methods used for estimating CO2 storage capacity. The focus is on deep saline formations, which may provide a large storage capacity, but oil and gas reservoirs and unmineable coals seams are also discussed. Two types of method are described: static methods, such as volumetric estimates, and dynamic methods, including reservoir simulation. The chapter concludes with a description of a number of recent surveys of CO2 storage, such as the US Department of Energy (DOE) CO2 Sequestration Atlas and the UK Storage Appraisal Project.
