The Potential of CO2 Geological Utilization and Storage in the Junggar Basin and the Opportunities for Early Demonstration Projects in the Eastern Junggar Region

Lead organisation: Center for Hydrogeology and Environmental Geology Survey, China Geological Survey

Partner:  Institute of Rock and Soil Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Lead researcher:  Dr Jianqiang Guo and Mr Yujie Diao

Objectives:

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.

Work packages:

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

Outputs and Outcomes

     
  • Assessment of the potential and suitability for CCUS in the Junggar Basin
  • Assessment of the potential for CO2-EWR and the potential for early demonstration projects
