A naturally fractured siliciclastic aquifer on Svalbard is being evaluated as a potential CO2 sequestration site for a local power plant. Well tests indicate substantial underpressure in the 700-1000 m deep reservoir, without a well-constrained cause. However, since the reservoir is gently dipping, and thus exposed at the surface 15 km up-dip from the… CONTINUE READING
