Carbon AXIOM, A Unique Storage Feasibility Tool
Find viable CO2 storage near you based on TGS subsurface modeling leveraging the industry’s largest library of well logs and production data, we provide insights into the carbon storage value chain from capture to container.
An Interactive Solution for Rapid CCS Evaluation
As custodians of the world's largest subsurface data library and experts in storing, sorting, and delivering that data into meaningful insights, we understand that our unique access to the secrets of the subsurface and ability to distill valuable insights from data can provide innovative tools to the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) industry. Carbon AXIOM is the first of such data-driven tools developed as part of our drive to support global CCS activity by increasing the efficiency of carbon storage feasibility assessment.
What is Carbon AXIOM?
Carbon AXIOM is a unique, web-based platform that enables stakeholders to quickly evaluate permanent CO2 storage opportunities by leveraging the world's largest well data library. Our production and well data are merged with seismic data to deliver key insights into potential storage volumes of CO2 storage containers, including fluid and reservoir properties.
Carbon AXIOM provides an intuitive framework that seamlessly integrates subsurface and infrastructure data to enable carbon storage prospectors to high-grade potential storage locations and identify the most economically viable storage options for their emitting source.

Explore Carbon Storage Potential
Carbon AXIOM provides basin-wide sub-surface visualization that can be interrogated for reservoir attributes such as temperature, pressure, salinity, porosity/permeability and reservoir thickness. This can produce an estimation of prospective carbon storage volumes throughout the stratigraphic column and within the sequestration window in both container geologies, saline aquifers and depleted reservoirs.
Existing coverage extends across the US Gulf Coast, including the onshore eastern Gulf Coast Basin, where our latest release extends saline aquifer assessment by mapping 30 sequences over 250,000 km² (62 million acres) across Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama.
CCS stakeholders can assess the carbon storage potential of saline aquifers along the US Gulf Coast. Our CCS geoscience team has mapped and performed petrophysical evaluations, using our subsurface data library. A combination of effective porosity, net formation thickness, and temperature and pressure models, are used to provide quantitative insights into the CO2 storage capacity of aquifers. These models can be visualized and evaluated via Carbon AXIOM, our simple, interactive, web-based platform.Assessment Process
- Seismic–well log tie
- Stratigraphic interpretation of saline aquifer intervals
- Petrophysical models – effective porosity, net thickness, temperature, pressure
- Raster grid development of reservoir attributes
- CO2 storage capacity calculation
Assess the carbon storage potential of depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs along the US Gulf Coast. Production data, bottom hole temperatures, pressure reports, and reservoir characterizations are combined to provide quantitative insights into the CO2 storage capacity of depleted reservoirs. These depleted reservoir models can be visualized and evaluated via our easy-to-use, interactive web platform, Carbon AXIOM.
Depleted Hydrocarbon Reservoir Assessment Process:
- Well production allocation at each formation level
- Temperature assignment at each producing interval
- Pressure assignment at each producing interval
- Grouped reservoir data into pool to estimate storage capacity
- Summarizing key data attributes per storage unit
- Generating the nearest and largest proximity storage pools
