CCS economic evaluation tool - including Rijnmond case study
Recent research showed that in the Netherlands over 2500 million tonnes of storage capacity is available in gas and oil reservoirs. Including the Slochteren gas field this will increase to close to 10,000 million tonne, roughly enough to store more than 50 years total current CO2 emissions in the Netherlands. The storage capacity is divided in many small, medium and large-sized storage locations, which are or will become available mainly in the next 10 to 20 years. The location of the potential storage reservoirs are mainly in the North of the Netherlands and in the North Sea. Figure 1 gives an overview of the location of storage reservoirs.
