The Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy today announced $400,000 in funding to the PTRC to build on 12 years of research into CO2 geolgocial storage. Saskatchewan CO2 Oilfield Use for Storage and EOR Research (SaskCO2USER) builds on the 12 years of research conducted in the IEAGHG Weyburn-Midale CO2 Monitoring and Storage Project, expanding research on storage, wellbore integrity, predicting CO2 migration underground, and the identification of effective monitoring techniques.
Research funding for the project has also been provided by the United States Department of Energy, Office of Fossil Energy's Carbon Storage Program, implemented by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).
