One of the main challenges facing geological storage is to identify cost-effective methodological workflows for characterizing and monitoring geological storage sites. In the framework of the ALGECO2 project, led by IGME, a preliminary study of the Lopín site in the north-east of Spain indicated conditions were promising for geological storage of CO2. However, the poor quality of the legacy seismic reflection data precluded thorough characterization. Within the H2020 PilotSTRATEGY project, one of the possible selected target reservoirs was the Lopín structure. In order to characterize its geometry and physical properties as required to properly evaluate its storage potential, IGME have applied a new emerging methodology that integrates reinterpreted reflection seismic data with newly acquired and interpreted gravity, passive seismic and petrophysical data. This methodology has been successfully applied along one seismic profile. In this paper, we present the results of this integration as the first step towards characterizing the site and evaluating its suitability for storage.
