CO2Wells: guideline for the risk management of existing wells at CO2 geological storage sites
27th June 2011
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology offers the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industrial sources by permanently storing (sequestering) carbon dioxide in deep geological formations. This Det Norske Veritas guideline describes a work process for managing the risks and opportunities associated with existing wells at CO2 storage sites.
This publication is the final deliverable from the CO2WELLS Joint Industry Project (JIP). The JIP addressed industry and regulatory concerns about the potential for CO2 leakage along abandoned wells, and additionally existing wells and well conversions.
The sponsors of the CO2WELLS JIP were: DNV, Shell Canada, Petrobras, Vattenfall, E.On New Build & Technology Ltd. and E.ON Gas Storage GmbH, RWE Dea AG, UK Health & Safety Executive, National Grid, Global CCS Institute, Gassnova SF and Gassco AS.
In Salah CO2 storage JIP: carbon dioxide plume extension around KB-502 well. New insights into reservoir behaviour at the In Salah storage site
1st September 2010
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. Satellite-based interferometry (InSAR) technology detected surface uplift over all three horizontal CO2 injection wells shortly after the start of CO2 injection. Imperial College London carried out simulations of CO2 injection aiming to gain a better understanding of the reservoir behaviour. The findings are reported in this paper.
