[en] The IEA GHG Weyburn Midale CO2 monitoring and Storage Project was undertaken in Southwestern Saskatchewan in 2000 in an effort to study geological CO2 storage. Under this project, a geological storage system was tested along with technologies to measure and monitor the effective long term storage of CO2. A recent study performed by Petro-Find Geochem Ltd. concluded that CO2 injected as part of this project migrated to the surface; the aim of this paper is to respond to this study. The Petroleum Technology Research Center points out that the CO2 was monitored by over 30 research organizations and that the results of the scientific research do not support the CO2 migration statement. In addition, the Petro-Find report stated that the injected CO2 was the source of high concentrations of CO2 in soils of the Kerr property, however, the Petroleum Technology Research Center did not find any substantial evidence of this in the report.
