At the Svelvik ridge, south of Oslo, a CO2 field laboratory has been established, to enable the creation of a well-monitored and a well-characterized geological environment to ensure safe injection of CO2.
In this project, SINTEF and its partners drilled 5 wells to 100m depth. Ruden Geo Services assisted during the mudlogging of these wells while drilling and performed well logging to enable establishing the geological model. Afterwards, the wells were completed and provided with a large selection of monitoring tools. At 14 November 2019, the project area was officially opened, and can now be used by various research institutes to test CO2 injection in a safe and controlled environment.
