IEAGHG 12th Monitoring Network Meeting
The 12th meeting of the IEAGHG’s Monitoring Network, hosted by Battelle and Core Energy, took place in Traverse City, Michigan between 13th and 15th June 2017. The venue in northern Michigan is close to an area of interest to the Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership. Battelle, in partnership with Core Energy, are heavily engaged in research related to CO2 storage and enhanced oil recovery in a series of pinnacle reef reservoirs that extend across the northern part of this state. During the meeting the hosts organised a tour of technical facilities that included CO2 injection, recovery and production facilities that helped delegates to appreciate the scale of CO2 surface operations and the equipment requirements.
