How It Works
Our Lacq commercial-scale demonstration project enables us to test carbon capture by means of oxy-fuel combustion, transmission via gas pipeline and storage in a depleted gas reservoir.
Monitoring and Sharing Results
We provide a number of organizations with the results of our Lacq carbon capture and storage R&D programs.
The Lacq commercial-scale demonstration project is subject to regulations stemming from the French Mining Code and the French Environmental Code. Regulations call for a monitoring period of three years.
Discussion and Consensus-Building
Total talks about the Lacq project and what it means for the region through a local committee, informational meetings, a brochure and a charter.
The monitoring program aims to verify that no gas is leaking from the storage site and that the environment is not being impacted by injection of the carbon.
