CO2CRC will install the key Otway Subsurface Laboratory facilities and utilise these along with existing CO2CRC owned facilities at the CO2CRC Otway Project site to undertake the CO2CRC Otway Stage 3 research project.
The primary objectives of Otway Stage 3 are appraisal, implementation, demonstration and validation of a novel subsurface monitoring of a CO2 storage system and storage operation. This research project will assist CarbonNet and other CCS projects in Australia in the development of subsurface monitoring as fit-for-purpose at a commercial scale.
Successful demonstration of the Stage 3 project can:
Both aspects are key challenges to overcome for CCS projects world-wide.
