Les combustibles fossiles peuvent être utilisés avec peu d'émissions en capturant le dioxyde de carbone et en le stockant dans des structures géologiques. Cependant, une fraction du carbone stocké pourrait fuir vers l'atmosphère, ce qui limiterait l'utilité de cette technologie. Afin d'explorer les compromis entre actualisation, étanchéité du réservoir, coût de séquestration et pénalité énergétique (l'énergie nécessaire pour capturer, transporter et injecter le carbone en sous-sol), nous développons un modèle analytique marginal simple de la valeur d'un stockage imparfait comparativement à stockage idéal. Si le taux de fuite annuel est de 1 pour cent et le taux d'actualisation de 4 pour cent, par exemple, alors le stockage temporaire) de la tonne de CO2 se compare à l'élimination (permanente) de 8 quintaux de ce même gaz.
