ECO2 - Sub-seabed CO2 Storage: Impact on Marine Ecosystems
The project ECO2 (Sub-seabed CO2 storage: Impact on Marine Ecosystems) is carried out by a consortium of 24 research institutes, one independent foundation, and two commercial entities from nine European countries. The project is coordinated by IFM-Geomar in Kiel. For details regarding the ECO2 consortium and the organization of the project, we refer to the website www.eco2-project.eu.The overall aims of ECO2 are to evaluate the likelihood, ecological impact, economic and legal consequences of leakage from sub-seabed CO2 storage sites.The contribution of LH2 to this project occurs within the Workpackage 1 (Caprock integrity) as well as within the Cross Cutting Theme 2 (Numerical modelling). Within Workpackage 1, it is one of the aims to provide a catalogue of possible leakage scenarios and their likelihood of occurence. This will be done for selected sites like Snoehvit or Sleipner. The modelling includes static modelling and dynamic modelling. The latter will be done by LH2 based on numerical modelling concepts developed in-house and implemented into the simulator Dumux.Cross Cutting Theme 2 (Numerical modelling) has the major aim to develop interfaces between the different kinds of numerical models which are applied in the different work packages for specific tasks.
