This paper describes the development and application of an methodology to screen and rank Dutch reservoirs suitable for longterm large scale CO2 storage. The screening is focused on off- and on-shore individual aquifers, gas and oil fields. In total 177 storage reservoirs have been taken into consideration (139 gas fields, 4 oil fields and 34 aquifers, with a total storage potential of about 3200 Mt CO2). These reservoirs have been selected from over five hundred potentially suitable CO2 storage reservoirs. The total number of storage reservoirs has been reduced by applying preconditions with associated threshold values. Nevertheless, the number of reservoirs is still significant and limits the possibility to use any pair-wise comparison method (e.g. Multi-Criteria programs such as Bosda or Naiade). Therefore, a excel tool has been developed based on linear aggregation. The tool screens the reservoirs based on three criteria: storage potentials, costs and effort needed to manage risk.
