South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub: project activity and progress report
South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub: project activity and progress report

1st June 2013

Organisation(s): Department of Mines and Petroleum, Global CCS Institute, Government of Western Australia, Western Australia

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

The South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub project (the South West Hub) is a government industry partnership led by the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP). The South West Hub is Western Australia’s first onshore Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) trial project.

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the South West Hub project and an update on recent activity and outcomes of the Harvey 1 well drilling program.

Harvey 1 stratigraphic well: early drilling outcomes. South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub

1st January 2013

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute, Government of Western Australia

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

The Harvey 1 well was drilled between 7 February and 23 March in 2012 on farmland at Lot 1326 Riverdale Road in Harvey. The site is part of Western Australia’s Swan Coastal Plain which lies to the west of the Darling Ranges, and the well was sunk into the southern part of the Perth Basin. Harvey 1 was a stratigraphic well designed to provide data and core samples from the underlying rock strata. When combined with information from subsequent research projects, this data will be used to build a model of the subsurface formations and to simulate CO2 injection scenarios. Following the completion of the data acquisition program from Harvey 1, the well has been plugged at several levels with cement, capped at the surface and the drill site is being remediated to its previous condition.

GSWA Lower Lesueur 2D seismic survey: A summary on the impact of the new seismic survey on the South West Hub Carbon Capture and Storage Project

25th May 2012

Organisation(s): Government of Western Australia, Schlumberger

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Use and storage (CCUS)

This report, completed by Schlumberger Carbon Services, subsurface consultant to the South West Hub Carbon Capture and Storage Project, details the results of a 2D seismic survey examining the suitability of the Lower Lesueur area for carbon storage. The Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum recently completed a well-drilling exercise to understand more closely the actual subsurface in the region so that the storage component of the South West Hub may advance. This exploration program will help improve the understanding of the Lower Lesueur area with regards to its potential for storing large volumes of industrial CO2 underground safely.

Collie-South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub: project and activity progress report for the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute
Collie-South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub: project and activity progress report for the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute

23rd November 2011

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute, Government of Western Australia

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

The South West CO2 Geosequestration Hub project is a government-industry partnership presently led by the Western Australian Department of Mines and Petroleum. The South West Hub project was established to examine the options for CCS in the South West of Western Australia (a major industrial region and a significant CO2 producer). In November 2011, the South West Hub project was shortlisted as one of the Australian CCS National Flagship Projects and in June 2011 was awarded AU$52 million under that Program for its ongoing project development.

This first Project and Activity Progress report prepared for the Global CCS Institute describes the project’s history, current status, and future program. Furthermore, it highlights key legislative interactions, public communication activities, as well as the challenges and risks the project is currently facing. Future progress reports, anticipated at six-monthly intervals will build on key themes noted in this first report. From time to time additional Special Reports on specific subjects considered important for the development of the South West Hub project will also be made available on the Institute’s knowledge platform.
