Developing recommendations for the management of geologic storage of CO₂ in Canada

David Keith and Malcolm Wilson

This document provides recommendations that we hope will assist the management of CO₂ storage in geological settings in Canada. The report was sponsored by the governments of Canada, Alberta and British Columbia. It does not try to develop a set of regulations; instead, it examines the issues and suggests alternatives that the sponsors may discuss with interested stakeholders. While this document of necessity deals with the monitoring and mitigation of risk, we believe that geologic storage can—if appropriately managed—provide a safe, effective and publicly acceptable means to achieve deep reductions in CO₂ releases into the atmosphere over the coming decades.
