Independent assessment of high-capacity offshore CO2 storage options
Independent assessment of high-capacity offshore CO2 storage options

23rd March 2012

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

An Independent CO2 Storage Assessment (ISA) was carried out by TNO to provide CCS project developers in the Netherlands with greater certainty over the availability and costs of prospective offshore CO2 storage sites.

This report covers Phase 3 of the ISA and provides a comprehensive overview of Dutch high-capacity offshore CO2 storage reservoirs.

Feasibility of monitoring techniques for substances mobilised by CO2 storage in geological formations
Feasibility of monitoring techniques for substances mobilised by CO2 storage in geological formations

23rd December 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

This study has been conducted to identify suitable analytes and monitoring tools for substances mobilized by CO2 as proxy indicators of CO2 movement or release. These indicators were divided into four main categories: (1) physical effects (e.g. changes in pressure, temperature, density, flow); (2) geochemical effects (e.g. diagenetic or dissolution effects); (3) shallow/surface effects (e.g. changes to microbial or ecological communities), and (4) capture gas contaminants that would be entrained in the CO2 plume but could act as chemical tracers.

Mountaineer Commercial Scale Carbon Capture and  Storage (CCS) Project: CO2 storage report
Mountaineer Commercial Scale Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Project: CO2 storage report

22nd November 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

Understanding sub-surface geology is a time consuming and labor intensive process especially in an unexplored region. The Mountaineer plant region in West Virginia is not a part of the conventional oil and gas exploration region and hence there is considerable lack of pre-existing data.

Based on the experiences of drilling six deep wells, the associated geologic and geophysical work and the experience from running the CO2 injection operations, AEP has a better understanding of the sub-surface and a CO2 sequestration project.

Basin resource management for carbon storage: a literature review
Basin resource management for carbon storage: a literature review

1st November 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

Supported by ANLEC R&D, CSIRO and Curtin University are jointly conducting an assessment of the site specific resources that are geographically co-located with proposed carbon storage. The project also aims to understand the structural, stratigraphic and geomechanical aspects at proposed storage sites in the Southern Perth Basin, the Gippsland Basin, and the Surat Basin, in Australia to assess the potential impacts of CO2 injection on adjacent resources. This literature review and data gap analysis forms a first step of the study to understanding the present level of knowledge for conducting such an assessment.

The literature reviewed relates both to any direct assessment of potential impacts of CO2 on other natural resources, as well as those that contain valuable information that would be used for making such an assessment. These include reports on hydrogeology and groundwater prospectivity, hydrocarbon and coal occurrence, geomechanical and structural assessment, and other relevant site specific studies on carbon dioxide storage.

Caprock systems for CO2 geological storage
Caprock systems for CO2 geological storage

24th June 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

This study aims to provide a comprehensive review of caprock systems for CO2 storage, with specific focus on the geological properties required for storage integrity and predictive modelling of performance. It is intended as a ‘high level’ overview of caprock systems to highlight the current state of knowledge and to identify further research required.

Implementation of Directive 2009/31/EC on the Geological Storage of Carbon Dioxide. Guidance document 1: CO2 storage life cycle risk management framework

29th March 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

This document addresses the overall framework for geological storage for the entire life cycle of geological CO2 storage activities including its phases, main activities and major regulatory milestones. Other issues addressed include the high-level approach to risk assessment and management which is intended to ensure the safety and effectiveness of geological storage, and the processes by which the Competent Authority or Authorities (CA or CAs) in each EU Member State can interact with the operators at key project stages, particularly with regard to risk management.

Deep saline sequestration study
Deep saline sequestration study

1st March 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

While the Trailblazer project located nearby the Permian Basin in West Texas intends to sell its CO2 for use in enhanced oil recovery (EOR), Tenaska believed it was prudent to understand the potential for geologically sequestering CO2 without concurrent EOR near the Project site as an alternative to the base case.  This desktop study was undertaken to examine the various subsurface options for the Project site.

This report describes how the Project gathered and analysed information on CO2 sequestration in deep saline formations near the Trailblazer site.

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

In early 2010, TNO Built Environment and Geosciences (TNO) was contracted by the Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) to conduct an Independent CO2 Storage Assessment (“the ISA” or “the Study”) of offshore CO2 storage sites under the Dutch North Sea, so as to support the early deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in Rotterdam and the development of a Rotterdam CCS Network. 

This document provides an outline of the rationale and key objectives for the Study and a description of the methodology applied.

Systematic FEP and scenario analysis to provide a framework for assessing long-term performance of the Krechba CO2 storage system at In Salah
Systematic FEP and scenario analysis to provide a framework for assessing long-term performance of the Krechba CO2 storage system at In Salah

1st January 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

The authors describe a structured qualitative approach to analysing varied kinds of engineering and environmental information from the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. This structured approach supports assessments of the likely performance of CCS systems over operational, monitoring and longer term time-frames. The approach included identifying important features, events and processes (FEPs) that describe the In Salah system and its likely evolution.

Leakage risk assessment of the In Salah CO2 storage project: applying the certification framework in a dynamic context
Leakage risk assessment of the In Salah CO2 storage project: applying the certification framework in a dynamic context

1st January 2011

Topic(s): Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage

The In Salah Gas project at Krechba, in the Sahara Desert of Algeria, is the world’s largest on-shore saline-formation geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project. This paper describes a simple risk assessment approach for evaluating CO2 and brine leakage risk at the site. In this report the authors describe an application of the certification framework (CF) risk assessment approach over two different stages. Results show that the assessment of likelihood of various leakage scenarios increased as more information became available, while assessment of impact stayed the same. Ongoing mitigation, modelling, and monitoring of the injection process is recommended.
