  3. Identifying Storage Prospects: Download the shape files here.
    If you have a question regarding these files, contact Alex Bump.
    Fetch-trap maps are designed to support storage project scoping and initial costing by defining the geologically-controlled compartments of the Gulf Coast. The compartments are interpreted (see “read me” notes) on structural horizons within the principle flow zones at storage depths.  Project developers could select to inject off structure and downdip in the fetch areas and allow the CO2 to migrate up-dip toward the structures (migration depends on flow properties) or to develop projects using the crest of structures.   The compartments substantially isolate CO2 migration paths. In some case they are separated by faults and may also be to greater or lesser extent pressure-isolated compartments.
