About the project:

The Czech-Norwegian project CO2-SPICER, focusing on preparation of the first pilot geological storage site in the Czech Republic, has successfully finished the first year of implementation. In the beginning, the focus was on collation of all accessible input data, their verification and consolidation. This step was followed by construction of a 3D geological model of the storage complex – the main activity of this project phase. Moreover, a detailed study of geomechanical and geochemical properties of rocks building the reservoir and its overburden has been started, as well as testing of usability of various methods for long-term monitoring of the stored CO2.
