CO2 storage

Event

OGS is organizing the second Training Course on research infrastructures for CO 2 storage, in Rome, on Wednesday 29 March. The course will offer the opportunity to learn more about ECCSEL and its facilities, accessible to international scientific community thanks to the Transnational Access Programme. Focus will be on monitoring...
The CO 2 Storage Data Consortium (CSDC) is a new international network aimed at promoting data sharing from pioneering CO 2 storage projects in order to accelerate innovation and deployment of CCS. The aim of this meeting is to explain the objectives and to gain feedback from potential participants. For...

Yesterday, 25th February 2015, drilling commenced at CMC Research Institute 's Containment and Monitoring Institute (CaMI) and the University of Calgary's Field Research Station (FRS#1). When completed in early 2016 the field research station (FRS) will be the first of its kind in the world with injection of small volumes...
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- An international collaborative research initiative funded by the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) got underway at CMC’s Field Research Station in July with the arrival of three University of Bristol seismologists. Drs. Anna Stork , Anna Horleston and Prof. Michael Kendall were at the...
A group of six researchers* representing four different UK institutions recently travelled to South Africa to undertake some targeted engagement funded by the UKCCSRC. While there, the researchers carried out some initial field work on a CO 2 leak through a well exposed fault and an abandoned well, as well...
The secure and permanent storage of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) within a single geological storage formation can be optimised by injecting CO 2 at more than one point simultaneously, according to results from an innovative study of rocks beneath the UK North Sea . The findings could help to...
