Caprock Integrity
& Gas Storage

24–25 January 2024, St-Ursanne

We are pleased to announce the first Caprock Integrity & Gas Storage Symposium at the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory, to be held from 24–25 January 2024 in the Mont Terri Visitor Centre, St-Ursanne, Switzerland.

Predict, Discuss & Invent
the Storage of CO2


Caprock Integrity & Gas Storage Symposium

The CIGSS aims at providing a platform for the exchange and discussion of scientific, technological, industrial, and regulatory advances related to the integrity of caprocks in the context of geological storage of CO2 and gas storage in general. The specialised conference is addressed to research institutes, industry, and government agencies.

The event takes place over two days, on 24 and 25 January 2024. The first day will be devoted to a symposium with government agencies, industry representatives and invited speakers. The following themes are on the agenda:

  • Public acceptance
  • Regulation
  • Site screening and exploration
  • Characterization and behavior of geological reservoirs
  • Characterization and behavior of caprocks
  • Key research developments of geological storage of CO2 and other gases
  • Expectation of CO2 producers

The second day will be devoted to a scientific conference and we call for abstracts (poster session) open to researchers in the field of fault, caprock and borehole integrity and gas storage in general. We welcome contributions on the topics:

  • Small-scale laboratory experiments
  • Medium-scale rock laboratory experiments toward pilot-scale project
  • Local and regional geological and structural investigations of potential sites
  • Risk and hazard assessments
  • Numerical studies and innovative monitoring systems
