AI can rapidly investigate potential CCUS aquifers sites and surrounding structures for fault presence. Compared to traditional attributes, which can mask fault presence in complex areas, AI can produce a sharp, clear fault response.  

Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) is thought to be an answer to reduce net COemissions globally. Carbon dioxide sequestration from large power plants or heavy industries from large industrial installations. 

 

The SNS Triassic Bunter Sandstone has been identified by man as an ideal aquifer for CCUS, with several faulted structures (Bunter mounds) potential storage sites.

Identifying appropriate storage sites is essential for successful CO2 storage, with a key parameter focusing on the trap and seal integrity.
