Origin and Geological Controls on Subsurface CO2 Distribution with Examples from Western Indonesia

B. A. Cooper, M. J. Raven, L. Samuel, Hardjono, W. Satoto


Potential sources of subsurface carbon dioxide (CO2) are reviewed. Mantle degassing, reaction (metamorphic and diagenetic) of carbonates and catagenesis of coals are the most important processes. Geological factors including the distribution of CO2 and hydrocarbon source rocks, seals and traps, as well as basin burial history and structural development all play a role in determining CO2 distribution and concentration and a detailed knowledge of these is required if accurate prediction of CO2 is to be achieved.
