TGS’ CO2 storage assessment accelerates net-zero strategies by allowing decision-makers to identify optimal subsurface formations for carbon sequestration, reducing emissions, and unlocking new value.

The CO2 storage assessment offers a comprehensive geologic assessment of saline aquifer storage potential by leveraging the company’s vast subsurface library of seismic, well, and geologic data. The subsurface assessment for carbon storage in saline aquifers considers the geologic structure, reservoir characteristics, fluid dynamics and caprock integrity to provide valuable insights when identifying the most promising subsurface formations for carbon sequestration.

Jan Schoolmeesters, EVP of Digital Energy Solutions at TGS, said, "As part of our comprehensive suite of energy data products to support the CCS industry, we are proud to announce our client-funded plan to deliver eight additional U.S. basins for carbon storage evaluation. This is a significant expansion regarding TGS’ CO2 storage assessment products, which will enable the industry to reduce emissions and unlock value through effective carbon sequestration analysis.”

This expansion of the CO2 storage assessment is supported by industry funding and the individual basin assessments will be released as they are completed throughout 2024 and 2025.
