processing of geological data for their use and protection,
c) search and groundwater sources including the survey of natural waters
medicinal, table of mineral and thermal, verification of their
usable inventory, examining the adverse effects on their quality and
the quantity, as well as the processing of geological data for their
use and protection,
(d)) identification and verification of inženýrskogeologických and hydro-geological

that could become an escape routes.
About the properties surrounding the planned storage complex
gather and obtain the following information:
and whether the storage complex) does not interfere in the territory of neighbouring States,
(b)) what areas of surrounding the storage complex may be affected by
storing carbon dioxide in the store,
(c) the distribution of the population in the area), situated above the storage of carbon
(d)) the proximity of the valuable natural resources (in particular the Natura 2000,
sources of potable groundwater and hydrocarbons), bearing
e) activities in the surroundings of the storage complex and the possible interaction with them
(for example, exploration, extraction and storage of hydrocarbons, geothermal
made use of horizons and resource use underground water),
(f) the proximity of potential sources) carbon dioxide (including estimates
the total potential amount of carbon dioxide that is cost-effective
to get to the store) and the appropriate transport networks.
2. Assessment of the planned storage complex using a three-dimensional
the static geological model
The planned assessment of the storage complex is performed using the
three-dimensional static geological model following the procedure.
2.1. Using the data referred to in point 1, with the help of computer
rezervoárových simulators creates three-dimensional static geological
model of the potential storage complex including the caprock and the hydraulically
related areas and fluid or set of such models. This static
geological model or models of the subsoil describe the complex of the following aspects:
and geological structure of the physical trap),
(b)) geomechanické, geochemical and flow properties of the overburden of reservoir
(overburden, seal rock, porous and permeable horizons) and the surrounding
(c) a description of the system and disruption of the) presence of any artificial paths,
(d)) and the vertical extent of the storage area of the complex,
(e)) the volume of pórového area (including porosity distribution);
(f) the basic layout fluid,)
g) any other relevant characteristics.
2.2. The uncertainty associated with each of the parameters used to create the
the model shall be assessed by means of the creation of several scenarios for each
parameter, and the calculation of the corresponding limits of reliability. Shall also
any uncertainty associated with the model itself.
3. A description of the storage dynamic behaviour, sensitivity characterisation,
To describe and assess the dynamic behavior of the planned storage of carbon
dioxide is used for dynamic modelling comprising simulation
procedure, the injection of carbon dioxide into the store using a three-dimensional
the static geological model or models created by bedrock
point 2 in the computer simulator of the storage complex.
3.1 description of the dynamic behavior of the storage
In describing the dynamic behavior of the storage are taken into account at least the following
and injection speed and) maybe the flow properties of carbon dioxide
(b)) the effectiveness of modeling pooled processes (i.e., the way to yourself
each component influences interact in the Simulator (simulators),
c) reactive processes (i.e. the way in which the model backward takes into account the response
vtláčeného carbon dioxide and minerals at the Save),
(d)) used rezervoárový Simulator (for verification of certain knowledge can
be needed to take advantage of multiple simulations)
e) short and long-term simulations (to establish interaction and behavior
carbon dioxide in a matter of decades and millennia including the extent
the solubility of carbon dioxide in the water).
The result of the dynamic modelling are the model values for these
f) pressure and temperature the storage formation as a function of the speed of the injection and
the cumulative volume of injection in time,
(g) areal and vertical expansion) of carbon dioxide over time,
h) flow properties of carbon dioxide in the reservoir including skupenských
I) mechanisms and rates of carbon dioxide retention (including points přetoku and
the lateral and vertical sealing),
j) secondary restraint systems in all of the storage complex,
k) storage capacity and pressure gradients in the store,
l) the risk of faults in the storage formation (storage formations) and overburden,
m) the risk of penetration of carbon dioxide into the overburden,
n) risk of escape from the repository (for example, abandoned or inappropriately
about) the speed of migration (in open reservoirs),
p) degree of sealing,
q) changes the chemical parameters of fluid in formation (formations) and subsequent
response (for example, changing the pH, the formation of minerals) and the use of reactive
modeling to assess the effects,
r) displacement of formation fluid,
with increased seizmicita and tricks) surface.
3.2. Description of the sensitivity
To characterise the sensitivity makes more simulations to determine
the sensitivity of the assessment to assumptions adopted regarding individual changes
parameters. The simulations shall be based on the changing parameters in the
the static geological model or models of the subsoil and the changing
speed functions and assumptions in the dynamic modelling. Any
any significant sensitivity shall be taken into account in the risk assessment.
3.3. Risk assessment
Risk assessment includes the following elements:
3.3.1. A description of the risk
Description of the danger lies in the characterization of the possibility of leakage from storage
complex discovered by using dynamic modelling described above and
characterization of security. In describing the risk is taken into account, inter alia,
to the following factors:
and) potential escape routes,
(b)) the potential scale of the leaks identified escape routes (speed
(c) critical parameters affecting) to possible escape (e.g. maximum
the pressure in the reservoir, the maximum injection rate, temperature, sensitivity to
each of the assumptions in the static geological model or models
(d) secondary effects of storage of) carbon dioxide, including the displacement of the original
formation fluid and creation of new substances by storing carbon dioxide,
e) all other factors that might pose a danger to the
human health or the environment (e.g. physical structures associated with the
Description of risk includes the full range of operating conditions in order to
Verify the security of the storage complex.
3.3.2. Exposure assessment – based on the characteristics of the environment and
distribution and activity of the population above the storage complex, and
the potential behaviour and fate of carbon dioxide of potential
escape routes identified in accordance with point 3.3.1.

possible leaks identified in accordance with point 3.3.1. Assessment of the effects on the
relevant cases include the effects (of asphyxia; hypercapnia)
increased concentrations of carbon dioxide in the biosphere, including land, and
decrease of pH in those environments as a result of a leak of carbon dioxide.
Assessment of the effects also includes the assessment of the effects of other substances that
may be present in the flow of carbon dioxide escaping (dirt
present in the vtláčeném flow or new substances formed after saving carbon
dioxide. These effects shall be assessed in the longer time and spatial
scale and depending on the different ranges of leaks.
3.3.4. A description of the risk-risk part of the description is the assessment of the safety and

term, including an assessment of the risk of leakage under the proposed conditions of use,
and the worst of the impacts on the environment and health. Description of risks
carried out on the basis of the assessment of risk, exposure, and effects. His
part of the assessment of the sources of uncertainty identified during the implementation of
each step of the description and assessment of the storage, and if possible, a description of the
ways you can reduce the uncertainty.
