In Salah
Industrial-scale CCS in action

In Salah, an industrial-scale CCS project in Algeria has been in operation since 2004. More than three million tonnes of CO₂, separated during gas production, have been securely stored in a deep saline formation.

The In Salah project is of global significance; providing assurance that secure industrial-scale geological storage of CO₂ is a viable option for climate change mitigation. The project is supported by the US Department of Energy and the EU. The Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum has identified In Salah as one of the most important industrial-scale CCS initiatives globally – helping to counter the view that the technology is not yet proven.

    In Salah receives CSLF Global Achievement Award

    The In Salah CO2 Storage Project has received a Global Achievement Award from the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF). The project has been recognized for its advanced scientific research and its efforts to share knowledge. Mr Keddam, President In Salah Gas, speaking at the opening ceremony after accepting the CSLF Global Recognition Award in Beijing, September 2011.

    CO₂ natural trapping mechanisms

    Oil and gas has remained underground for millions of years. The same natural conditions allow injected CO₂ to be stored securely. Click here to read more
