- CO2 mixed with formation water does not geochemically alter the seals to such an extent that they leak, summarizes Professor of Geology Per Aagaard, and adds: Although these promising results of the SSC-Ramore project, we still do need more knowledge of the process involved in the sealing caprock above the CO2 reservoir to be certain that the sealing is tight and CO2 stays in place. Now our research focus has somewhat shifted towards how the geomechanical properties change with diagenetic processes (cementation) and structural deformation processes.
