Résumé

The evaluation of the storage capacity of the St. Lawrence Lowlands basin was performed in the Province of Québec (Eastern Canada). The Covey Hill and Cairnside formations have global porosities of 5% and 3%, which is enough to be considered in the basin-scale storage capacity evaluation. The efficiency factors used in the capacity calculation are defined in the Carbon Sequestration Atlas of the United States and Canada and range from 0.51% to 5.4% in clastic sedimentary units. Two 3D geological models of the basin were used to represent the potential reservoir units at the basin-scale: uniform and faulted basin. This allowed calculating the volume of the potential reservoirs and comparing the capacity of a large-scale uniform basin with a faulted basin compartmentalized by the existing normal faults.
