- This region includes the Tarragona, North Castellón and North Teruel industrial areas
- The presence of geological structures with large, medium and small storage capacity offers the potential for early onshore storage development
- There are opportunities for several commercial CCU technologies, such as converting CO2 to chemicals, CO2 usage in enhanced oil recovery operations and the remediation of alkaline industrial wastes
- The presence of a transport network from Barcelona port – which includes potential access to around 2000 km of gas pipelines – could link CO2 sources with storage sites and CO2 usage opportunities.
