This project will analyse geological conditions of the Junggar Basin to evaluate the basin’s potential and suitability for CO2 geological utilization and storage (CGUS). Suitable CO2-EWR storage sites will be identified, after a comprehensive study of reservoirs characteristics and geological safety. Based on the result from source-sink matching in the eastern Junggar region, early CO2-EWR development opportunities may be proposed to governments and industries.
WP1: Regional potential and suitability evaluation
WP2: CO2-EWR target areas analysis and potential evaluation in the eastern Junggar region
WP3: Source-sink matching and early demonstration opportunities in the Junggar Basin
