PROJECT ON SUBSURFACE GEOLOGY TO ASSESS AREAS AND STRUCTURES WITH GEOLOGICAL STORAGE CAPACITY IN SPAIN: IBERIAN SYSTEM AND THE TAJO AND ALMAZÁN BASINS. ALGECO2 PROJECT.
The project consists of identifying – based on existing surface and subsoil information – geological formations and structures with characteristics, geometric arrangement, and composition of their cover (shed) that enable them to be considered as potentially acceptable for CO₂ storage.
Establish the areas occupied by the pairs of formations identified (storage and shed), by analyzing geological data.
Specifying the position (location, limits) and geometry of potentially adequate structures and the suitability of their characteristics, incorporating subsoil information previously drawn up and analyzed in this or other projects.
Establishing conceptual geological-structural models in the areas/structures, in order to assess the structural complexity and demarcate the hydrogeological operation.
Proposing and outlining future works and research by area, by structure and by pair of formations (storage and shed).
