1 CO 2 storage science development and application in Italy Salvatore Lombardi Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum, April 2013 Rome, Italy

2 Objectives Site selection and characterization Acquisition of CO 2 baseline onshore and offshore Developing and testing monitoring tools (onshore-offshore) Risk assessment Public awareness and legislation soil gas - gas flux measurements Deep and shallow geophysics automatic remote monitoring structural geology and gas migration modeling legislation evaluation of monitoring results and public acceptance Site selection and guidelines for site certification

3 CGS: major organizations in Italy Governmental Authorities Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico Ministero dell Ambiente Research Organizations CNR, ENEA, INGV, OGS, RSE Industries ENEL, ENI Universities Cagliari University La Sapienza, Rome University

4 Potential areas for CGS in Italy Areas suitable for CO2 storage (~ 12 Gton) EC Geocapacity and Italian project results (OGS) Sulcis

5 CO 2 baseline in Italy Studying migration of deep seated gases, researchers of Rome University have performed geochemical surveys over a wide range of geological scenarios : Volcanic areas Tectonic areas Adriatic through Tyrrhenian Sea Adriatic Sea As consequence CO2 baseline at regional and local scale have been evaluated

6 CO 2 baseline in Italy CO2 in soil air 0-100% (v/v) Statistical distribution of CO2 in soil air data Strong difference between different geological settings can be observed

7 CO 2 baseline in Italy 0 to 5 % CO 2 CO2 in soil air 0-5% (v/v) 0 to 20 % CO 2 Statistical distribution of CO2 in soil air data difference among data do not exist. It can be inferred that this data population corresponds to CO2 baseline at regional scale

8 Use of Natural Laboratories for gas migration studies: methods applied at Latera caldera by OGS and URS Soil gas and CO 2 flux Gas injection tests through faults Structural survey Gas migration modelling Ground Penetrating Radar Microgravity Magnetometer Seismic data acquisition (deep seismic profile - OGS) Electromagnetic survey Geo-electrical survey (resistivity survey) Spectral induced polarization Self Potential Mapping Time Domain EM Vertical Electrical Sounding (VES) Surface water conductivity survey Remote sensing (OGS, URS) CSLF 2013 meeting, Apri 2013,

9 Use of Natural Laboratories for gas migration studies at Latera gas vents CO2 flux (g/m2/d) CO2 flux soil gas CO soil gas CO2 (%) Soil gas survey erial photo Aerial photo Gun seismic Shotgun Seismic CSLF 2013 meeting, Apri 2013,

10 Shallow marine geochemistry: CO 2 marine baseline; developing monitoring tools Use of continuous monitoring probes for CO 2 at natural leaking marine site near Panarea (sea bottom). Note difference between nonleaking and leaking areas CSLF 2013 meeting, Apri 2013,

11 Industrial initiatives Porto Tolle (ENEL) Coalbed methane and enhanced coalbed methane recovery and CO2 geological storage performance assessment in the Sulcis basin (Carbosulcis-ENEA- Sotacarbo) Partners: BRGM Bureau de Recherches Geologiques et Minières, (France) IFPEN Energie Nouvelles, (France) IMPERIAL Imperial College, (UK) OGS - Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale (Italy) TNO - Netherlands Institute of Applied Scientific Research, (Netherland) URS CE.RI. Centro di Ricerca «Previsione, Prevenzione e Controllo dei Rischi Geologici, La Sapienza, (Italy)

12 Geological scketch map of Sulcis area

13 Gas migration at Sulcis area

14 Network of continuous monitoring stations at Sulcis area URS ENEA collaboration

15 Network of continuous monitoring stations at Sulcis area Sensor at -5 m from surface

16 General Conclusions UNIVERSITÀ DI ROMA Several areas suitable for CGS have been selected in Italy (capacity about 12Gton) No significant gas leakage has been found in the areas suitable for CGS in Italy; CO2 baseline at local and regional scales have been acquired in central and south Italy (based on over CO 2 measurements in soil air) CO 2 continuous monitoring stations have been installed in Italy both inland and offshore Some industrial initiatives already exist in Italy
