Our project consortium brings together world-leading expertise in the fields of CO2 storage and shale gas monitoring. We will draw on this expertise to develop new technologies that will improve the detection and monitoring of environmental impacts for geoenergy projects.

The research team will develop state-of-the-art sensors to monitor flow leaks and geomechanical stresses. New technologies that will increase the range of detection for toxic quantities that fall below the detection limit of current sensors will also be tested.

The results will enable both large-scale and remote monitoring of shale gas and CCS sites, providing a flexible portfolio of techniques and sensors for project developers and operators.
