Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an essential technology in global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes. Factors holding back the broader deployment of CCS include operating costs and concerns over the safety of long-term storage.
The Containment and Monitoring Institute facilitates the development of reliable, accurate greenhouse gas measurement and verification technologies. At our 200-hectare field research station technology developers are advancing the commercialization of carbon storage and helping industry better understand the movement of fluids underground.
With increased focus on shale gas and in-situ oil sands extraction as well as growth in the carbon storage industry, subsurface research has never been more important.
New businesses and technologies are needed for regulatory compliance (verification) and also for leak detection mitigation, source identification and crucial performance validation to drive the improvement of processes and to alleviate public concerns about technical safety.
Our world-class Field Research Station offers equipment and facilities for testing and proving a wide variety of technologies and processes.
