Study to investigate east Mediterranean CO2 storage potential

Offshore staff

EDINBURGH, UK -- A team of scientists from Scotland and Cyprus aim to study potential sites for storing carbon dioxide (CO2) beneath the eastern Mediterranean Sea, south of Cyprus.

The collaboration involves the University of Nicosia’s Centre for Green Development and Energy Policy (CGD) and Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS). They will seek funding for the research program from the European Union.

The plan is to use methods developed in previous SCCS projects to assess CO2 storage capacity in the North Sea, studying seismic data and other information to build a picture of storage sites, including depleted oil and gas reservoirs and saline aquifers.

This, they say, could boost Cyprus’s capacity for tackling carbon emissions.
