Containment & Monitoring Institute

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an essential technology in global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes. Factors holding back the broader deployment of CCS include operating costs and concerns over the safety of long-term storage.

The Containment and Monitoring Institute works with industry, academic researchers and other technology developers to test and demonstrate accurate, cost-effective measurement and verification technologies for hydrocarbons in the air, soil and water. At our 200-hectare Field Research Station, our experts work with clients and researchers to:

  • Advance the development of monitoring technologies and protocols for carbon storage
  • Refine monitoring technologies for enhanced oil recovery
  • Help industry better understand the movement of fluids underground
  • Improve the performance of methane emissions detection innovations
