幌延深地層研究計画(本計画)は、日本原子力研究開発機構(原子力機構)が堆積岩を対象に北海道幌延町で実施しているものである。原子力機構の第3期中長期計画では、本計画について、「実際の地質環境における人工バリアの適用性確認、処分概念オプションの実証、地殻変動に対する堆積岩の緩衝能力の検証に重点的に取り組む。また、平成31年度末までに研究終了までの工程やその後の埋戻しについて決定する。」としている。幌延深地層研究計画は、「地上からの調査研究段階(第1段階)」、「坑道掘削(地下施設建設)時の調査研究段階(第2段階)」、「地下施設での調査研究段階(第3段階)」の3つの調査研究段階に分けて進めることとしており、全体の期間は20年程度を考えている。平成31年度は、地下施設での調査研究段階(第3段階)を継続しながら、第3期中長期計画の5年度目として、同計画に掲げた3つの課題を達成していくための調査研究を実施するとともに、成果の取りまとめを行う。

As part of the research and development program on the geological disposal of high-level radioactive waste (HLW), the Horonobe Underground Research Center, a division of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), is implementing the Horonobe Underground Research Laboratory Project (Horonobe URL Project) with the aim at investigating sedimentary rock formations. According to the research plan described in the 3rd Mid- and Long- term Plan of JAEA, "Near-field performance study", "Demonstration of repository design option", and "Verification of crustal-movement buffering capacity of sedimentary rocks" are the top priority issues of the Horonobe URL Project, and schedule of future research and backfill plans of the project will be decided by the end of 2019 Fiscal Year. The Horonobe URL Project is planned to extend over a period of about 20 years. The investigations will be conducted in three phases, namely "Phase 1: Surface-based investigations", "Phase 2: Construction phase" (investigations during construction of the underground facilities) and "Phase 3: Operation phase" (research in the underground facilities). This report summarizes the investigation program for the 2019 fiscal year (2019/2020). In the 2019 fiscal year, investigations in "geoscientific research", including "development of techniques for investigating the geological environment", "development of engineering techniques for use in the deep underground environment" and "studies on the long-term stability of the geological environment", are continuously carried out. Investigations in "research and development on geological disposal technology", including "improving the reliability of disposal technologies" and "enhancement of safety assessment methodologies", are also continuously carried out.
