Retrofitting coal-fired power plants for carbon dioxide capture and sequestration: exploratory testing of NEMS for integrated assessments
Retrofitting coal-fired power plants for carbon dioxide capture and sequestration: exploratory testing of NEMS for integrated assessments

18th January 2008

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

As part of an assessment for analyzing the prospects of retrofitting existing coal-fired power plants for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration, an integrated analysis using the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) of the Energy Information Administration was undertaken using a generic model of retrofit costs as a function of basic plant characteristics (such as heat rate). Modifications to NEMS were made to enable an endogenous determination of the tradeoffs between retrofit, retirement, and the purchase of emission allowances. The cost for CO2 retrofit included direct costs (capital and O&M), indirect costs (capacity and heat rate penalties), and a nominal cost for transportation, injection, measurement, monitoring, and verification (MMV).

From EOR to CCS: The evolving legal and regulatory framework for carbon capture and storage
From EOR to CCS: The evolving legal and regulatory framework for carbon capture and storage

1st January 2008

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), Policy law and regulation

Carbon capture and storage has been proposed around the world as a potentially key technology for reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The United States oil and gas industry has a long experience in transporting, injecting, and effectively storing CO2 in tertiary oil recovery operations usually known as Enhanced Oil Recovery. As a result, there already exists a legal and regulatory framework that addresses many – but not all – of the issues that will need to be addressed if carbon capture and storage is to be adopted by policymakers as part of a carbon regulation regime. A review of that existing framework allows identification of those aspects that appear adequate to govern the sale, transport, and injection of CO2 for carbon capture and storage purposes as well as those that do not. Building on this analysis, the authors conclude that the current legal framework will be largely adequate from a transactional and interim standpoint to allow parties to structure a relatively seamless transition from CO2 storage that is an incidental result of oil production operations to those incremental injections of CO2 intended solely for permanent underground storage. The authors also suggest some possible approaches for crafting new rules to fill potentially remaining legal or regulatory gaps.

Global wind energy outlook 2008
Global wind energy outlook 2008

1st January 2008

Topic(s): Wind energy

The Global Wind Energy Outlook 2008, published by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and Greenpeace International, examines the global potential of wind power up to 2050. The report concludes that wind energy could play a key part in achieving a decline in emissions by 2020 as per the IPCC specifications. This report seeks to answer questions about the global wind industry including how important a role it will play, and what share of the global electricity ‘pie’ can and will wind occupy in the future.

1st January 2008

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

This paper describes the use of interferometric synthetic aperture radar to map changes in the surface of the Krechba natural gas field at In Salah, Algeria. The authors state this this is the first instance the spaceborne system has been used for this purpose. They describe methodology and results, concluding that this system is a promising, cost-effective monitoring tool compared with other conventional geophysical surveys.

Coupled reservoir-geomechanical analysis of CO2 injection at In Salah, Algeria
Coupled reservoir-geomechanical analysis of CO2 injection at In Salah, Algeria

1st January 2008

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

This paper describes coupled reservoir-geomechanical modeling of CO2 injection at Krechba, at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. Several studies have investigated surface uplift surrounding Krechba injection sites. In this approach, the authors simulate the actual CO2 injection in a three-dimensional model around one horizontal injection well, and conduct sensitivity studies to determine the cause and mechanisms of the uplift.

Evaluating the impact of fractures on the long-term performance of the In Salah CO2 storage site

1st January 2008

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

This paper presents the authors’ current knowledge on the characterisation of faults and fractures at the CO2 storage demonstration site at the Krechba natural gas field at In Salah, Algeria. The authors discuss their current understanding of fault and fracture properties at Krechba, which is essential for realistic predictions of CO2 flow behaviour at the site. Furthermore, an extensive monitoring program is underway to improve the characterisation of the Krechba field as storage location and to verify the applicability of a number of monitoring methods for CO2 storage purposes.
