Zero Emission Porto Tolle: ZEPT Project results
Zero Emission Porto Tolle: ZEPT Project results

1st February 2014

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

This report summarises the main lessons learnt and key findings from the Zero Emission Porto Tolle (ZEPT) project. The ZEPT project was funded by the European Energy Programme for Recovery (EEPR) during the period 2009-2013 and covered the design, procurement and construction of a demonstration CCS plant as well as the detailed site characterisation, to verify the feasibility of the injection and storage of CO2 in a safe and verifiable manner.

Wellbore integrity at the Krechba Carbon Storage Site, In Salah, Algeria: 2. Reactive transport modeling of geochemical interactions near the cement – formation interface
Wellbore integrity at the Krechba Carbon Storage Site, In Salah, Algeria: 2. Reactive transport modeling of geochemical interactions near the cement – formation interface

1st September 2010

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

This paper describes a reactive transport modeling approach to assess key geochemical reactions between wellbore cement, formation mineralogy, and injected supercritical CO2 at the Krechba natural gas field at In Salah, Algeria. The findings informed a reactive transport model which considered advective transport of CO2 along the wellbore-formation interface and diffusive transport of CO2 and brine constituents into juxtaposed wellbore cement.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Characterizing and predicting short term performance for the In Salah Krechba Field CCS Joint Industry Project
Characterizing and predicting short term performance for the In Salah Krechba Field CCS Joint Industry Project

1st September 2010

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

This paper describes models and simulations that look ahead up to 10 years into the performance of CO2 injection at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. The authors describe the field geology, static earth model, dynamic situation model, and the history match process and results of predictive dynamic simulation. The simulation suggests that injected CO2 will reach some gas production wells by year 2015.

Coupled non-isothermal, multiphase fluid flow, and geomechanical modeling of ground surface deformations and potential for induced micro-seismicity at the In Salah CO2 storage operation
Coupled non-isothermal, multiphase fluid flow, and geomechanical modeling of ground surface deformations and potential for induced micro-seismicity at the In Salah CO2 storage operation

1st September 2010

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

This paper presents the results of a modelling study to assess the effectiveness of long reach horizontal injection wells at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. The authors investigate monitoring techniques to evaluate the performance of a CO2-injection operation in relatively low permeability formations. And, they analyse simulation results in terms of injection-induced reservoir stress and the potential for injection-induced micro-earthquakes at Krechba.

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

1st September 2010

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

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.

This paper presents information by the Joint Industry Project established to monitor CO2 storage at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. This study describes detailed simulations of the hydromechanical response in the vicinity of the KB-502 CO2 injector in an attempt to explain why the morphology of the observed surface deformation differed from that above the other injectors at the field.

In Salah Gas CO2 Storage JIP: surface gas and biological monitoring

1st September 2010

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

This paper presents information by the Joint Industry Project established to monitor CO2 storage at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria.  The authors describe the methods for measurements and surveys, and explain the results for the 2009 monitoring program. Concluding remarks note that in spite of the environmental factors and scarcity of vegetation, plant diversity is relatively high, and that soil gas data did not indicate any CO2 leakage except possibly at KB-5.
