Video 4 Short Version: Regional characterization of the basins and selection of the CCUS injection site
At the Regional scale of subsurface characterization, Stratum Reservoir contributes to risk reduction in the definition of the critical components of Petroleum Systems (presence and quality of Source, Reservoir, and Seal) in sedimentary basins. In the assessment of the regional settings to understand the suitability of a region for CCUS injection sites, clients will be interested largely in characterizing Reservoir and Seal properties. The evaluation processes followed for the two types of characterization are very similar, with timely collection and analysis of the appropriate data for subsurface characterization being critical. Sometimes, there may be a challenge in communicating the value of the geoscience data collection and analysis to clients focused on cost management.
