The UK CO2 Storage Evaluation Database, CO2 Stored, has been developed by the British Geological Survey (BGS) and The Crown Estate.

CO2 Stored is a web enabled database, containing derived geological data, storage estimates, risk data and economics for nearly 600 potential CO2 storage units located offshore UK. These include oil and gas reservoir and saline aquifers.

The database builds on the work of the UK Storage Appraisal Project (UKSAP), which was commissioned and funded by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI). The UKSAP study estimated that the UK has a total Theoretical Storage Capacity of 78 GT with 50% confidence, one of the highest in Europe.
