Evaluation of risk assessment methodologies using the In Salah CO2 Storage Project as a case history

1st September 2010

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage, Health safety and environment

This paper presents the results of an analysis of three risk assessment methods using the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria as a backdrop. The methods assessed are the RISQUE QRA (Quantitative Risk Assessment) process, a Certification Framework developed for the CO2 Capture Project (CCP), and the Quantitative Risk Through Time Analysis (QRTT). The authors conclude that overall both CF and RISQUE QRA methodologies were consistent and provided useful insights into the In Salah project.
