CGS Europe Workshop: CO2 Geological Storage in North–western Europe

December 12-13, 2011 at GEUS, Copenhagen, Denmark
Workshop topics to be covered will be most recent research on geological storage of CO2, the fate of the injected CO2 and monitoring.
As sharing of experiences and good practices will help researchers to maximize their time and resources in similar contexts, CGS Europe organizes a specific workshop on CO2 Geological Storage in North–western Europe, essentially aimed at scientists. The workshop will present results from ongoing research projects in primarily in Denmark–Norway, but moreover, debates will form an essential part of the workshop since one aim is to hatch new ideas for research and cooperation projects. The results of the workshop will be summarized in a small report.
