Geoscience BC Seeks Data Partners to Define Northeast BC Carbon Storage Potential – Global Renewable News

February 26, 2024

Geoscience BC is calling on Northeast BC energy industry partners to share access to their data which can be repurposed to further understand carbon storage potential in the region.

The request is for Geoscience BC’s new Northeast BC Granite Wash Carbon Storage Assessment project, which aims to better understand the carbon storage potential in the Granite Wash Formation to inform decisions by industry, governments, communities, Indigenous groups and others.

Building on the Northeast BC Geological Carbon Capture and Storage Atlas project completed in 2023, attention has turned to the regional mapping and assessment of carbon storage potential in the Granite Wash Formation in the Fort St. John and Dawson Creek area. The new project is a partnership between Geoscience BC and the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation.

Further partners, including companies that can provide access to seismic information or support, are sought to enable the gathering, cataloguing and interpreting of existing relevant geoscience data. The results will augment the existing CCS atlas.
