Containment and Monitoring Institute (CaMI)

Containment and Monitoring Institute (CaMI)

The Containment and Monitoring Institute (CaMI) boasts a unique field research station for in-field testing of technologies to accelerate the development and deployment of technologies to measure, monitor and verify secure underground storage of CO2. In addition, CaMI provides an unparalleled opportunity to test, in-field, new technologies related to hydrocarbon production and environmental monitoring. The research station represents a partnership between the Carbon Management Canada Research Institutes and the University of Calgary, with support from the federal government’s Western Economic Diversification, Schulmberger and Cenovus. The field site is an international stage for new collaborative opportunities for researchers, technology developers and industry partners from Canada and around the world.
