Climate change, requiring development and deployment of carbon capture and storage technology (CCS), is one of the most important challenges in this century. Unless our understanding of CO2 subsurface behaviour is strongly improved, international regulations for annual worldwide deposits of 15-20 Gt CO2/y may never come into operation. The main objective of the SUCCESS centre is to provide a sound scientific base for CO2 injection, storage and monitoring, to fill in gaps in our strategic knowledge, and to provide a system for learning and development of new expertise. The SUCCESS centre addresses several important areas for CO2 storage in the subsurface: storage performance, sealing properties, injection, monitoring and consequences for the marine environment. The “CO2-School” is in addition a major educational program. The centre has 3 workpackages, Reservoir, Containment and Monitoring. NIVA participate in the monitoring with sensors development, effectstudies and modeling.
