Abstract

In January of 2011, the owners of property located in the southwest portion of the Weyburn-Midale Unit in Saskatchewan, Canada, alleged that CO2 injected as part of the Weyburn-Midale CO2 Monitoring and Storage Project was leaking from their property. Prior to the property owners' allegations, the International Performance Assessment Centre for Geologic Storage of Carbon Dioxide (IPAC-CO2) had initiated development of an incident response protocol to be implemented when allegations arose of unintentional releases of anthropogenic CO2 from carbon capture and storage projects. IPAC-CO2 implemented this protocol to determine if CO2 concentrations as high as 11% result from an unintentional release of anthropogenic CO2 or if they form naturally from microbial CO2 production in the organic-rich wet environment that characterizes the property. This paper presents preliminary findings resulting from implementation of the IPAC-CO2 incident response protocol. Particular attention is paid to the results of both soil-gas and noble gas analyses.
