The objectives of this paper are to evaluate the suitability of the Central Luconia Province as a potential geological storage site for CO2 in Malaysia and to estimate the theoretical storage capacity of the basin by using Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) and US Department of Energy (US-DOE) methods. The Central Luconia that has a limited faulting and located within seismic-free zone and possessing suitable geothermal condition which is an attractive characteristic for potential site for CO2 storage are found to be suitable for geological CO2 storage in Malaysia. The Central Luconia Province is estimated to be able to store CO2 from 56 Gt up to 75 Gt. The Central Luconia Province is believed to be a potential site for geological CO2 storage and will give much help in reducing CO2 emissions in atmosphere of Malaysia.
