    Abstract

    Mapping efforts over the past decade has resulted in fairly good knowledge about the wide range of CO2 storage options that exists across Europe. Several research groups in Europe are currently maturing this knowledge further with the end-goal to maturing the knowledge about suitable sites to the level where there is significant certainty of storage capacity. This paper present work that contribute to this effort, where regions offshore Denmark and Germany not previously mapped have been investigated for storage capacity. These regions are the i) Danish sector of the southeast part of the North Sea, ii) the Danish sector of the Southwest part of the Baltic Sea, and iii) the German sector of the Southwest part of the Baltic Sea (partly extending into the Polis sector). The results show that there are important near-shore potential storage sites available, though the certainty is limited about their actual storage capacity.
