Equinor, Shell, and Total are developing the Northern Lights project as equal partners.
The Eos well targeted the Dunlin Group Geological formation as the primary storage, where the sandstone-bearing Cook and Johansen formations both can serve as storage units for the injected CO2.
The cap rock consists of impermeable claystones called Drake Formation, which prevents the CO2 from migrating out of the Dunlin Group.
The data acquired from drilling well 31/5-7 confirmed a suitable reservoir for the storage of CO2.
The gathered data will be made available via Equinor’s OMNIA platform. The released data discloses relevant subsurface data including well log data, core data, and well test data.
The dataset comprises about 850 files and more than 83 Gigabytes.
Sverre Overå, project director, said: “The Northern Lights project believes data sharing can play an important role in building trust in the technology as well as unlocking value and innovation potential in the CCS industry.”
The Norwegian Full-Scale CCS project “Langskip” is the first industry scale project for capture and storage of CO2 on the Norwegian continental shelf.
