There are countless, and even famous, examples of oil explorers and geologists finding all the right conditions for an oilfield only to discover, when the exploration well drill bit finally reaches the reservoir, that the oil was drained away due to a hole in the cap rock
It is possible to shorten stemming heights for improved cap rock
AVO stands for "Amplitude Versus Offset" and exploits the angle of incidence dependent seismic wave behaviour at the interface of a cap rock
and a potentially porous and hydrocarbon filled reservoir rock.

In recent years, MRCSP has collected data about Ohio's geology and these studies indicate that the rock foundations around the Burger Plant include porous sandstone layers thousands of feet below the surface with very dense cap rock
lying above -- conditions potentially well-suited for safely storing CO2 as the technology is developed.
The uppermost part of the carbonate cap rock
