TGS, provider of multi-client geoscience data for exploration and production (E&P) companies, has announced the completion of a Geological Carbon Storage Atlas for British Columbia, Canada for a major oil and gas company.

The objective of the study was to provide the most up-to-date understanding of geological carbon storage locations, onshore and offshore, throughout the province of British Columbia. Through collaboration with its partner Canadian Discovery Limited (CDL), TGS leveraged their world-class basin evaluation expertise, subsurface data library, and geological knowledge and experience through working in British Columbia, to create a framework for carbon storage assessment and atlas for potential storage locations.

Katja Akentieva, EVP of Onshore & Well Data at TGS, says, “TGS has a goal to contribute to a more sustainable energy future. This project is a great example of how TGS data and insight enabled its customers to evaluate carbon storage opportunities which ultimately leads to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. I am pleased to see how TGS is able to apply its ESG strategy in a practical setting.”
