Characterisation of the Krechba CO2 storage site: critical elements controlling injection performance
Characterisation of the Krechba CO2 storage site: critical elements controlling injection performance

1st September 2010

Organisation(s): BP Alternative Energy, Midland Valley Exploration, Statoil

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery, Use and storage (CCUS)

This paper explores the reservoir features that have proven critical in controlling injection performance at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. The paper is divided into the three main themes of characterisation: structural geology, fracturing, and pore space characterisation. The authors conclude that structural geological and rock mechanical aspects are most critical in the early injection phase. When considering medium to long term effects, characterisation of the pore space, combined with the dynamically created fracture permeability, becomes more important.

Evaluation of risk assessment methodologies using the In Salah CO2 Storage Project as a case history
Evaluation of risk assessment methodologies using the In Salah CO2 Storage Project as a case history

1st September 2010

Organisation(s): BP Alternative Energy

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Health, safety and environment, Use and storage (CCUS)

This paper presents the results of an analysis of three risk assessment methods using the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria as a backdrop. The methods assessed are the RISQUE QRA (Quantitative Risk Assessment) process, a Certification Framework developed for the CO2 Capture Project (CCP), and the Quantitative Risk Through Time Analysis (QRTT). The authors conclude that overall both CF and RISQUE QRA methodologies were consistent and provided useful insights into the In Salah project.

In Salah CO2 Storage JIP: site selection, management, field development plan and monitoring overview
In Salah CO2 Storage JIP: site selection, management, field development plan and monitoring overview

1st September 2010

Organisation(s): BP Alternative Energy

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery, Use and storage (CCUS)

This paper presents information on the Joint Industry Project (JIP) established to monitor CO2 storage at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. Site selection was guided by the standard oil-industry Capital Value Process (CVP).  After four years of injection and monitoring, a Quantified Risk Assessment (QRA) was performed to update the development plan. Monitoring included satellite facilitated measurements of surface deformation, as well as conventional oilfield technologies.

A full field simulation of the In Salah gas production and CO2 storage project using a coupled geo-mechanical and thermal fluid flow simulator
A full field simulation of the In Salah gas production and CO2 storage project using a coupled geo-mechanical and thermal fluid flow simulator

1st September 2010

Organisation(s): BP Alternative Energy, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery, Use and storage (CCUS)

This paper reports on the results of a full field simulation model of CO2 production and injection at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. The study followed CO2 from the injection wellheads, down the wells and through the completions and into the storage interval. The resulting models describe likely future behaviours of the storage system.

CO2 sequestration monitoring and verification technologies applied at Krechba, Algeria
CO2 sequestration monitoring and verification technologies applied at Krechba, Algeria

1st February 2010

Organisation(s): BP Alternative Energy, Statoil

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery, Use and storage (CCUS)

This paper provides an overview of the In Salah CO2 storage project. The experimental and demonstration project commenced in 2004. In 2005 a joint industry project was set up to monitor the CO2 storage process using a variety of geochemical, geophysical, and production techniques over an initial five-year period. The authors describe risks and corresponding monitoring technologies including the use of satellite imaging.

Satellite imaging to monitor CO2 movement at Krechba, Algeria
Satellite imaging to monitor CO2 movement at Krechba, Algeria

1st January 2008

Organisation(s): BP Alternative Energy, Statoil

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery, Use and storage (CCUS)

This paper describes current and future use of satellite data to monitor and model injection sites at the Krechba natural gas field at In Salah, Algeria. The authors explain the current monitoring programme at Krechba, and the role satellite imagery plays. The authors conclude that experience at In Salah shows that satellite imagery now has the resolution to be a key monitoring technology for onshore storage.
