Subsurface CO2 storage

A global reach experimentation on subsurface storage of CO2 in Rousse (near Pau) from 2008 to 2013 (60 M€ of investment).

The monitoring of each parameter has been realised by Total in collaboration with UPPA research laboratories (4 ANR projects). This pilot, associating scientific and technical results obtained by these laboratories, has confirmed the feasibility of subsurface CO2 storage.

An accompanying sociological survey has demonstrated that people of the site are confident in this method. As the objectives are to increase the number of storage sites up to 30 in 2020, scientific expertise of the consortium will be in high demand: social acceptability and technology efficiency (performance of the energetic transformation).
