Abstract/Summary

This chapter highlights that the injection of CO2 into the Utsira Sand0 has been in progress for more than seven years, with an annual rate of approximately one million tones. This project is considered as the first industrial-scale, environmentally driven CO2 injection project in the world. In consequence, a European research project has been organized around it, with special focus on monitoring and simulation. To that end, four seismic surveys have so far been acquired, one prior to injection, and three afterwards in 1999, 2001 and 2002. In this chapter results from the 2002 survey are presented for the first time and compared to findings from the previous surveys. The major conclusion is that there are still no indications of CO2 leakage to levels shallower than the Utsira Sand.
