In the H2020 project ENabling Onshore CO2 Storage in Europe (ENOS), research and development at five field sites takes a prominent role. Each of these gives attention to particular challenges or different applications of injected CO2. Research initiated on three of the five pilot sites gives an overview of which different challenges will be tack- led and how they are approached. These include the direct geological and technical challenges of CO2 injection (Hontomin), oil production compatible with the climate- energy nexus (CO2-EOR, LBr-1), and the integration of geological storage in CO2 capture and utilisation schemes (Q16-Maas).
