Publications, Reports & Research
Our publications, reports and research library hosts over 500 specialist reports and research papers on all topics associated with CCS.
Mt pa). The report includes the following: 1. Description of the assessment methodology applied. 2. Description of general geology of the areas. 3. Characterisation and ranking of the sites in terms of Social and Environmental factors; access and infrastructure; injectivity, storage capacity, containment. 4. Summary of data in appendices based on various cores and bore holes that are available in the public domain, including stratigraphic profiles, and hydrological data.
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.
This report presents an update of the economics of carbon capture and storage (CCS) prepared in 2009. The 2009 report was commissioned by the Global CCS Institute and delivered as Foundation Report Two in the series of five studies undertaken as part of the strategic analysis of the global status of carbon capture and storage.
Foundation report two involved a detailed analysis of the capture, transport and storage costs for power plants and a select range of industrial applications. This report presents a transparent methodology that uses updated and refined costs to reflect changes in the market since 2009.
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.
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.
