Abstrakt

This chapter presents data for a possible future aquifer storage site in Denmark and evaluates the entire CO2 sequestration system including nature and characteristics of the geological structure, CO2 point sources, transport, and injection system. Over the past two years, the potential for underground storage of CO2 in Denmark has been evaluated as part of the European Community supported research project GESTCO (Geological storage of CO2 from fossil fuel combustion). The Danish part of the study comprised the storage potential of hydrocarbon fields, deep saline aquifers, and a combined application in geothermal energy systems. Two main options exist with respect to geological sequestration of CO2: utilization of CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in the North Sea oil fields 500-100 km away from the emission points, and aquifer storage close to the individual emission point. The storage site comprises a 4-way domal structure with an estimated storage capacity of more than 1 Giga tons of CO2. It is situated close to the largest CO2 point source in Denmark. The analyzed sequestration system alone could account for up to half of the reduction required for Denmark to fulfill the Kyoto Protocol.
