A geological storage option for CO2 in the Bohaiwan Basin, East China?

By Ceri J. Vincent, Rongshu Zeng, Wenying Chen, Guosheng Ding, Mingyuan Li, Shifeng Dai and Niels E. Poulsen


Geological assessment of the Bohaiwan Basin in eastern China for the COACH (Cooperation Action within CCS China-EU) project indicated that storing carbon dioxide (CO2) in this region will be technically challenging and require a flexible storage solution. It is suggested that a pilot scheme within the Dagang oil field complex could prove the concept of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and CO2-Enhanced Oil Recovery (CO2-EOR) in the challenging conditions of oil fields in this region of China. This could be followed by simultaneous injection of CO2 into a nearby larger oil field and adjacent aquifers that would offer a potential storage option by combining the larger storage space anticipated for aquifers with the possible future financial incentives of CO2-EOR.\ud \u
