The Pelican site in Bass Strait, Australia has been selected by CarbonNet as the most attractive near-term location for CO2 storage in a basin rated as the best in Australia by previous national studies. The site has been independently certified and offers 125 MT of storage at P90 confidence level in a large structure located just offshore. World class reservoirs demonstrate high injectivity and nearby oil and gas fields demonstrate that the seal systems are effective. CarbonNet has acquired new high-resolution 3D marine data over the storage site and intends to drill an appraisal well in the near future. CarbonNet manages a total of five offshore greenhouse gas exploration permits and has other storage sites available for future expansion.
