This dataset contains points marking the approximate central points of the ten saline aquifers with potential for CO2 storage in the Scottish offshore area as identified in 2009. They are colour coded according to whether they meet minimum (orange) or best (green) practice geotechnical requirements.  The saline aquifer locations are displayed in the Saline Aquifer Areas layer.
