Project Concept: Southwest BC Geological Carbon Capture and Storage Atlas

Lead Researcher(s):  TBD

Project ID:  2022-009

Key Research Organization(s):  TBD

Project Location:  Southwest BC

Strategic Focus Area:  Energy-Resources


British Columbia’s Southwest Region has significant sources of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Finding and technically assessing feasible CO2 sequestration targets in the region would be a benefit and would provide information to help in decision making by government, communities, Indigenous groups and industry.

The region is host to thick, deep, sandstone formations however research is needed to understand their potential for CO2 sequestration.
