The Opportunities for CO2 Storage around Scotland report, published in 2009 by the Scottish Government and Scottish Centre for Carbon Storage identified ten saline aquifers with potential for CO2 storage in the Scottish offshore area.

This layer indicates the approximate centre location of the aquifer and whether they meet minimum (orange points) or best (green points) practice geotechnical requirements.
