Task Force on Geological Storage
To discuss the geological CO2 storage
potential of the Baltic Sea
and surrounding regions and to identify research needs and possibilities
for international cooperation.
Some of the BSR countries, such as Finland and Estonia,
lack any suitable geological CO2 storage sites. Some of
the potentially suitable geological formations are bordering
several countries and many are still inadequately studied.
Sites potentially suitable for CO2 Geological Storage (CGS)
in the BSR are composed of Cambrian and Devonian sandstones,
located at a depth of more than 800 m in the Baltic Basin,
situated onshore and offshore in Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden,
Poland and Russia.
The storage task force plays a vital role in the CGS Baltic
EUSBSR seed project which is currently developing a CO2 geological storage project plan for the BSR.
