2017 IEAGHG International CCS summer school, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, 17th to 22nd July 2017. On the final approach to Regina international airport one thing you notice is the number of trees and how green the city is, where for the second consecutive year, the 2017 IEAGHG International CCS summer school was held at the University of Regina, hosted by the International CCS knowledge centre. The start of the week involved a networking dinner, where Tim Dixon, Technical programme manager for IEAGHG, welcomed the 36 students from 14 nations which were followed by a series of opening speeches from Innovation Saskatchewan and the International CCS knowledge centre. This networking opportunity allowed the students to meet each other and the CCS experts,...Read more
Welcome to the final blog by researchers from the University of Nottingham working on the UKCCSRC Call 2 project, Measurement of water solubility limits of CO 2 mixtures to underpin the safe pipeline transportation of CO 2 .(PIs :Michael George and Martyn Poliakoff). This UKCCSRC project has focused on the measurement of water solubility limits in CO 2 mixtures to underpin safe pipeline transportation of CO 2 . The presence of any water in CO 2 rich mixtures can result in high acidity and subsequent corrosion of pipelines. The UKCCSRC’s Research and Pathways to Impact Delivery report identified understanding the water solubility limits for supercritical-phase CO 2 with N 2 and H 2 impurities, as a crucial step for the...Read more

Last August I (Paul Tait) spent a few weeks travelling back and forth between Edinburgh and Sheffield, to carry out a pilot-scale test campaign at the UKCCSRC’s Pilot-Scale Advanced CO 2 -Capture Technology (PACT) facility. Our research group at the University of Edinburgh, led by Dr Mathieu Lucquiaud and Dr Hannah Chalmers, tends to focus on issues of CO 2 capture plant and full-system flexibility, so the opportunity for researchers to basically play around with a pilot plant for a few weeks is a huge bonus of having the PACT facility available to us. Although in comparison to some other recent UKCCSRC blogs, the location isn’t exactly glamorous! We intended to implement various dynamic scenarios including realistic start-up and shut-down...Read more

Thanks to the UKCCSRC International Research Collaboration Fund I have been conducting baseline seismic monitoring at the Field Research Station (FRS) near Brooks, Alberta. The FRS is an exciting research project run by the Containment & Monitoring Institute (CaMI), a business unit of CMC Research Institutes in Calgary. The plan is to inject CO 2 into the subsurface at a depth of approximately 300m. Geophysical, geochemical, geomechanical and geodetic monitoring research at the site will be used to study the subsurface gas plume to improve understanding of shallow groundwater systems, fluid flow and the behaviour of CO 2 in an aquifer. The work has involved several trips to Brooks, first to deploy the broadband seismic stations and then to collect...Read more
