Abstract This desk-based survey of UK requirements for Measurement, Monitoring and Verification (MMV) of offshore CO2 storage sites was designed to provide a clear view of the developing legislation, state of the art of MMV technologies and field experience in UK offshore applications. The study reviewed UK legislative requirements, features of likely UK storage sites and potential MMV technologies. From this, MMV technology development requirements were identified to give an understanding of the main technology gaps and to establish where ETI resources should be focused to deliver future technology development. The Project provided valuable and focused information about the technology and developing regulatory environment and identified priorities for the development of MMV technologies to meet UK requirements.
