The CO2 DataShare Digital Platform has Launched and is Open for International Research
The CO2 DataShare is a digital platform for sharing reference datasets from pioneering CO2 storage projects like Sleipner. The platform, which has now been launched, allows researchers based anywhere in the world, to download datasets from representative CO2 storage sites. Equinor, one of the World's leading companies in the advancement of CO2 storage, has provided its Sleipner 2019 Benchmark model through the CO2 DataShare Portal. The company in partnership with SINTEF, the University of Illinois and IEAGHG initiated the CO2 Storage Data Consortium in 2016 with financial support from Gassnova and the US Department of Energy.
