IEAGHG Modelling and Risk Management Network Meeting, Field Trip to the BEST site western North Dakota

As part of the latest IEAGHG combined Modelling and Risk Management Network meeting, hosts EERC organised a field trip to a brine extraction and pressure management test site (BEST) near Watford City, North Dakota.One of the challenges presented by CO2 injection into saline formations is an increase in reservoir pressure. Brine extraction can be us...

CATO Conference - Implementing CCUS in the Netherlands

CATO invited national and international stakeholders on the 6th June to convene, inform one another, and share knowledge on recent advances on CCS in The Netherlands. The event covered both policy relevant topics and project developments. While Europe is committed to implement CCS, a firm strategy including the business case is still needed. Nation...

CO2 Storage and Geothermal Energy benefit from mutual technology applications

One of the highlights from the US DOE Carbon Storage and oil and natural gas Technologies Review Meeting between 1st and 3rd August 2017, was a summary from, Robert Vagnetti of NETL on the current US geothermal FORGE programme (Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy). This energy source is not only relatively abundant in the US it a...

New Report: 2017-05 Combined meeting of the IEAGHG monitoring and modelling networks

‚ÄčOverall good progress is being made with the experience gained in both monitoring and modelling from demonstration and pilot projects. There is real progress in streamlining MMV at projects and reducing the costs of monitoring. Several sites have now demonstrated conformance of a modelling-monitoring loop, leading to an improvement in the understa...

2016-TR6 National CO2 Storage Assessment Guidance

 The effectiveness of CCS as a global solution to carbon emission abatement will depend on widespread deployment in both established industrialised and developing economies. One of the key stages for any country is the identification of a national CO2 storage resource. To help understand the challenges faced by different countries that have ei...

New Report: 2017-01 Case Studies of CO2 Storage in Depleted Oil and Gas Fields

CO2 storage has now been tested at a number of demonstration sites around the world, including some depleted oil and gas reservoirs. The use of depleted reservoirs can offer some advantages because the geological characteristics that are pertinent to CO2 storage, such as the distribution of porosity and permeability, have been pre-determined. Altho...

New IEAGHG Report: 2016-13 Fault Permeability

Fault zones are widely recognised as being important to the secure long term storage of CO2 as they could provide a leakage pathway out of the target reservoir. Fault characterisation within reservoirs, especially where they extend into caprock, and other overlying formations, needs to be thoroughly understood as part of any risk assessment for CO2...

Regional Assessments of the Economic Barriers to CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery in the North Sea, Russia and GCC States

 The use of CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is a well established commercial practice in the United States where it has been used for over 40 years. There is widespread potential for CO2-EOR in other mature petroleum producing regions. If CO2-EOR could be implemented it would offer an economic stimulus to develop CO2 storage. There are, ho...

Evaluation of Barriers to National CO2 Geological Storage Assessments

 A study recently completed for the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) has just been published. This review was undertaken by the CO2 Storage team of the British Geological Survey (BGS) on behalf of UK Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Korean Clean Energy Ministry who jointly funded the work. The project was managed by ...
