Gippsland Basin CO2 Storage Project

Overview

The Gippsland Basin CO2 storage project is a four year program that aims to assess the greenhouse gas storage potential of the southern flank of the Gippsland Basin. The project is being delivered in collaboration with the Victorian Department of Primary Industries.

In 2010, 8,000 line kilometres of 2D seismic data was acquired over the southern flank of the Gippsland Basin. The Australian Government will use the resultant processed and interpreted seismic dataset to assess the storage potential of the area through preliminary regional CO2 migration pathways modelling and characterisation of the regional seal.

The processed seismic grid and preliminary interpretation, as a pre-competitive data set, will also assist industry to assess the greenhouse gas storage potential of the offshore Gippsland Basin.
