    The efficient capture and safe geological storage of CO2 is one of the significant measures that can be considered to sequester CO2 emissions, as the main greenhouse gas, from the atmosphere to mitigate the adverse effects of anthropogenic global warming. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a three-step technology which refers to carbon capture at the source of combustion or chemical reaction, its transportation, and subsequent long term storage in geological formations such as depleted oil and gas reservoirs and deep saline aquifers. Various trapping mechanisms are involved in the CO2 storage process (i.e. structural and stratigraphical, residual, dissolution and mineral trapping mechanism). These possible geological formations are distributed in different sedimentary basins around the world are deposited in a variety of depositional environment. The CO2 storage potential and its movement within an identified reservoirs depend on its depositional environment. My Phd project investigates structural trapping mechanisms and a various depositional environment in CO2 storage capacity and security.
