Abstract

As part of the National CO2 Infrastructure Plan (NCIP) Geoscience Australia is undertaking evaluation of the Gage Sandstone and the overlying South Perth Shale for the long-term storage of CO2. Initial assessment of the seismic data identified widespread fault reactivation and seismic anomalies potentially indicating hydrocarbon seepage. Some of the seismic anomalies clearly correlate with reactivated faults, but not all of them. The study highlights the importance of developing a detailed understanding of spatial variability in seal quality and history of fault reactivation both for petroleum exploration and CO2 storage assessments.
