Researchers at the University of Bergen (UiB) have identified PET scanning as an
effective tool for improved oil production and CO2 storage
Understanding the long-term fate of geologically stored CO2
The ULTimateCO2 project had two clear goals: to significantly advance knowledge of
processes that may affect the long-term fate of geologically stored CO2 and to provide
guidance on techniques for predicting the long-term performance of a storage site
