The purpose of this study is to examine the CO2 sorption amount for Kimachi sandstone and Berea sandstone in water-saturated and air-dry states using the pressure decay method (manometric method) at 50 °C and pressure of up to 20 MPa and to provide useful information for assessing the effect of water saturation state on sorption behavior of CO2 in host reservoir rocks.
