Task Force on Geological Storage

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.
