Storage estimates – Washington and Oregon onshore and offshore sedimentary basins


This technical memorandum presents the approach, results and conclusions for the estimated storage CO2 capacity for the onshore and offshore sedimentary basins in the states of Washington and Oregon. This memorandum follows an earlier report prepared by Golder for the WESTCARB team that identified all onshore sedimentary basins in these two states, and provided background information of their physical and hydraulic properties, and provides the first storage estimates. This memorandum follows the guidelines presented in the US Dept. of Energy’s Methodology for Development of Geologic Storage Estimates for Carbon Dioxide (March 2008) for making the estimates
