FEASIBILITY STUDY OF CO2 STORAGE IN SALINE FORMATIONS AND STRUCTURES OF THE UPPER SILESIAN COAL BASIN

Abstract. This article presents a study of possible locations for CO2 storage reservoirs in the brine aquifers in the Upper Silesian Coal Basin. Based on the analysis of the geological structure and hydrogeoiogicai characteristics three brine aquifers have been designated for possible CO2 storage: two in the Carboniferous deposits - in the Upper Silesian Sandstone Series and Cracow Sandstone Series - arid one in the Miocene deposits of the Dębowiec Beds. Among these three series the most adequate conditions for potential CO2 storage are present in the Dębowiec Beds. The most promising area is located to the west of Bielsko-Biała between Cieszyn and Czechowice-Dziedzice. Capacity for CO2 storage in this region is estimated at 40-60 Mt. Because a considerable part of the area is covered by the Nature 2000 protection and landscape parks, some problems may arise for the CO2 storage plans.
