33. Will fish or wildlife be affected by CO2 storage?
The WMP showed that CO2 was not affecting either groundwater or soil in the areas where water and soil were tested above and near the oilfield. Fish would only be affected if the CO2 entered groundwater, lakes, or rivers from deep in the earth. Likewise, animals would only be affected if CO2 were leaking into the atmosphere or the soil. As indicated in the two previous questions, there is no evidence that leakage has happened, and the fish and other animals above the Weyburn oilfield have not been affected by CO2 storage.
