Abstract: A summary and ranking of geological storage options for CO2 in the Waikato region and potential reservoirs in the onshore Taranaki Basin is presented herein, based on a series of reports delivered as part of the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) research programme. The scope of this report comprises: 1) A background review of CO2 sequestration or storage, some current projects overseas, and an overview of the natural properties of CO2. 2) A review of generic geological CO2 storage options including: deep unmineable coal seams, and abandoned underground coal mines; deep, saline formations; depleted or near-depleted oil and gas fields, including discussion on enhanced oil and enhanced gas recovery (EOR and EGR) using CO2 injection. 3) Summary of storage options in the Waikato region. 4) Summary of storage options in the onshore Taranaki Basin reservoirs. 5) Summary comments and recommendations.
