This blog was written by Hayley Vosper from BGS, whose attendance at the UKCCSRC meeting on Flow and Transport for CO 2 Storage was supported by the ECR Meeting Fund . This meeting was hosted by QCCSRC at Imperial College, London. I signed up for this meeting as someone who is involved in the modelling of CO 2 storage primarily to get an update on the current research topics in the area. I was interested to see what techniques are used to integrate complex pore and core scale processes into reservoir scale simulations. The meeting covered flow and transport aspects of modelling for CO 2 storage across the whole range of length scales, from pore-scale analysis up to full reservoir...Read more
Written by Hayley Vosper from BGS, whose attendance at the UKCCSRC Strathclyde Biannual Meeting was supported by the ECR Meeting Fund . The session on International CCS consisted of six talks from researchers around the world, giving updates on the current state of CCS in their respective countries. The first talk was given by Tania Constable from CO2CRC and was based around the past, present and future of CCS in Australia . In the past large grants have been awarded to CCS projects but the current situation poses a more difficult business case scenario; Tania summarised some of the strategies being used to improve this. Four of the major projects in Australia were then outlined: Gorgon, CarbonNet, the CO2CRC Otway...Read more
