PANACEA Project Brainstorming Day 2014

The second Brainstorming Day on the long-term fate of geologically stored CO2 was successfully held in Paris, France, on December 19th 2014. Specialists from the international CCS community were gathered to discuss a variety of topics such as natural analogues, leakage, mitigation and remediation, monitoring, but also public acceptance and regulations.

Following the success of the Brainstorming Day 2013 in Norway, Bureau Veritas organised in 2014 a second edition of this international event to disseminate the PANACEA findings towards the CCS community. The Brainstorming Day 2014 took place on December 19th 2014, at Bureau Veritas Head Office in Neuilly-sur-Seine (Paris), France.

The one-day workshop gathered successfully more than 40 attendees coming from diverse countries such as Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, Norway, Israel, Sweden, Spain and France. The targeted audience was made of policy-makers, legislators, CCS site planners, operators and CCS associations that advice previously listed organizations.

The structure of the event, allowing long time slots dedicated to open discussions, and the variety of topics addressed (public acceptance, regulations, processes in the reservoir, pressure, leakage and associated mitigation and remediation means, prediction, natural analogues, contemporary storage, uncertainties and monitoring) were highly appreciated by the attendees. Beyond the presentation of PANACEA outcomes, one specific session of the workshop was dedicated to the UltimateCO2 project, strengthening the link between the two EU FP7-funded projects.

Ciara O’Connor, UKCCSRC Storage Research Manager attended the meeting and presented on the ways UKCCSRC could support the dissemination of PANACEA project findings.
