The Opportunities for Carbon Geological Storage in Cambodia

Environment and Resource System Engineering Laboratory, Department of Urban Management, Graduate School of Engineering
Place of stay: Cambodian National Petroleum Authority (CNPA), Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC), Cambodia
Term: Feb. 28 - Mar. 7, Jun. 24 - Jul. 8, 2012, etc.
Cambodian National Petroleum Authority (CNPA) and our laboratory are proposing carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), considered as the technology that can greatly reduce CO2 emissions from stationary sources, located in Cambodia. Therefore, an 8 weeks international internship has been conducted at CNPA, assessing the suitability of Khmer Basin for CO2 storage, and then the result was shared to students at Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC). This internship includes geological interpretation based on paper-based data collection such as seismic, electronic well log, gravity and magnetic. As the result Mid Miocene to Pliocene rocks are potential used for CO2 injection in both oil and gas reservoirs and deep aquifers. Overall, the goal is to develop and train workforce that can accelerate implementation and deployment of CCS project in Cambodia. An added benefit of having a knowledgeable CCS workforce is that the Khmer Basin can be applied to EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery) to increase domestic oil production and reserves.
