Community Outreach


This Project was one of the first integrated CCS projects in the world at this scale, and the first to be authorised in France. The social dynamics of this project were particularly interesting at the local level. The CO 2 storage site was close to a fairly densely populated area-the city of Pau and it's neighboring cities had nearly 150,000 inhabitants in 2007. The CCS chain started at the Lacq Industrial Facility (located 30km from the injection site). The communities around the Industrial Facility have been living for over 50 years with a high level of industrial activity near their homes, however, the communities nearest the storage area, tend to be semi-urban or rural with less familiarity of industry.
