The purpose of the Phase 2 pilot project was to verify the injectivity and storage abilities of the reservoir and predict the overall geometry and size. The first generation injectivity tests use water as a medium with tracers added. The injectivity tests were performed over a 2-3 year period.
The tests and analyzes performed during Phase 2 will determine the porosity and permeability levels at the various segments of the reservoir and thereby determine the overall geometry and the storage abilities.
In this phase, the project also perform laboratory level CO2 injection, using the core samples from the drill holes, and perform baseline studies regarding marine pockmarks, permafrost and vegetation.
