Principles for Best Practice Geomechanics for CCS Injection Operations and its Application to the CarbonNet Project

Organisation: CarbonNet Project

CarbonNet is investigating the potential for establishing a commercial scale CCS network, bringing together multiple CO2 capture projects in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley, transporting the CO2 via pipeline and injecting it deep into nearshore underground storage sites in the Gippsland region. It plans an initial capacity to capture, transport and store in the range of 1-5 Mtpa of CO2 during the 2020s.

The latest report, titled  “Principles for Best Practice Geomechanics for CCS Injection Operations and its Application to the CarbonNet Project”, found the basin in which the CarbonNet Project site is targeting has the ideal geological conditions for storage. A CarbonNet Project study shows that their storage site would not be prone to seismicity and that the selected site is suitable for the permanent storage of CO2.
