AbstractThe research objectives of the Aquistore CO2 storage project are to design, adapt, and test non-seismic monitoring methods for measurement, and verification of CO2 storage, and to integrate data to determine subsurface fluid distributions, pressure changes and associated surface deformation. The test area is located west of the Boundary Dam Power Station in the southeastern Saskatchewan, Canada. The targeted CO2 injection zones are within the Winnipeg and Deadwood formations located at > 3000 m depth. An array of monitoring technique has been employed in the study area including satellite Differential Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (DInSAR-MSBAS) technique, GPS, tiltmeters and piezometers. DInSAR-MSBAS results performed here, using RADARSAT-2 were calculated based on over one hundred images from five different beams obtained during 20120612-20140209. DInSAR-MSBAS results indicate slow ground deformation up to 1 cm not related to CO2 injection but caused by different natural and anthropogenic causes.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The research objective of the Aquistore CO2 storage project is to design a procedure of CO2 monitoring from the ground and the satellite. The test area is located in southeastern Saskatchewan, Canada. For our specific work we used Canadian satellite data from 20120612-20140209. We calculate ground deformations based on over one hundred Canadian satellite images. The results indicate slow ground deformations up to 1 cm/year not related to CO2 injection but caused by different natural and anthropogenic causes. Further research using different kind of data will be carry on to specify details of ground deformation.
