The media release also stated that the permit was "filed in partnership with Geogreen, a subsidiary of the French Geological Survey (BRGM), IFP and Géostock. BRGM is also a partner of the project."
The media release stated that the permit was for "portions of the Meuse, Meurthe-et-Moselle and Moselle departments. The goal of this exploration phase, which will take place between 2011 and 2014, is to complement document-based analysis and to acquire geological data on the ground to confirm that the potential considered zones are indeed appropriate for CO2 storage."
