A reservoir evaluation study for the Moebetsu Formation at Tomakomai candidate site for carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) demonstration project in Japan was conducted. Geological interpretation, such as 3D seismic interpretation, sedimentary facies interpretation, and 3D seismic facies analysis was carried out to clarify the geological structure, sedimentary facies, 3D seismic facies of Moebetsu Formation. Geological model and simulation model were constructed by using the results of geological interpretation. Reservoir simulation study for CCS was carried out using simulation model. As a result, it was confirmed the possibility of injection CO2 at the target amount (2.5×105 tonne/year × 3 years, based on demonstration plan) and it was confirmed that caprock have sufficient seal capacity to CO2 long-term storage. From the results of this study, it is confirmed that Moebetsu Formation has desirable properties as the injection target of CCS Demonstration Project
