WP2 will assemble, acquire and interpret geological data for the three pilot sites (Ebro, Lusitanian and Paris Basins), building conceptual geological models of them. For the two secondary sites (West Macedonia, Upper Silesia) data will be acquired, re-processed and re-interpreted. 


  • Geological modelling of pilot sites (Ebro, Lusitanian and Paris Basins) 
  • Bespoke data acquisition and interpretation for each pilot region; will supply additional data to WPs 3 & 4
  • Each region will work semi-autonomously on their own site, but with common methodology and aims
  • Re-interpret data for secondary sites  (Upper Silesia, West Macedonia) to advance understanding of the prospects for CO2 storage


Output Title
D2.1 - Target area of Paris Basin Region (FR): Data inventory, seismic target and GAP analysis
Output description

This report presents the CO2 storage area in France to be fully characterised in PilotSTRATEGY and the target for the 3D seismic survey. This report also includes an inventory of available data in the selected area and a gap analysis.

Output Title
D2.2 Gravimetric Survey: Lopín Structure, Onshore - Ebro Basin, Spain
Output description

Within the framework of the project “CO2 Geological Pilots in Strategic Territories (pilotSTRATEGY)”, a gravimetric survey was carried out with the aim of improving the knowledge of the Lopín structure (Ebro Basin ‐ onshore). This gravimetric study, allowed filling the existing gaps of information and represents the first step to carry on the development, monitoring and implementation of this potential Pilot Site.

Output Title
D2.3 Seismic acquisition for Paris Basin plus survey results and interpretation
Output description

This deliverable is a detailed report of the 3D seismic acquisition conducted in the Paris Basin – Grandpuits area for the PilotSTRATEGY project and preliminary seismic interpretation.

A full detailed explanation of the workflow and parameters used for seismic acquisition is presented in the current report. Design, permitting, acquisition, quality control and pre‐processing of the campaign were carried out by Smart Seismic Solutions (S³), third party partner of the project, from December 2021 to July 2022. The acquisition itself (layout of the receivers, vibration, collection of the receivers) took place over a period of only 5 weeks from mid‐May until the end of June.
