CCUS Cluster Sequencing Phase 1, Track 1

BEIS announced the much coveted fast-track slot winners on the 1st November 2021 – Hynet in northwest (NW) England and the East Coast Cluster in the northeast (NE). A simple, but notable differentiation between the two is that the NW project is looking to reuse as much infrastructure as possible (pipelines, depleted gas fields), whereas Read the full article…


Measurement, Monitoring and Verification (MMV)

An ‘MMV’ plan for a carbon storage project must incorporate many different activities, covering both subsurface and environmental considerations. Pre-storage. A baseline must be established. This can rely on/utilise data including 3D seismic and legacy/new wells. During storage operations. Seismic and wellbore observations must be repeatable, for comparison with the baseline. This way, the evolution Read the full article…


Linking Industrial Clusters to Suitable Storage Sites

The concept of a carbon transport network linking multiple proximate emission point sources to a regional storage hub has emerged as forerunner for enabling/implementing low risk and cost-effective Carbon Capture and Storage developments. Such large-scale Transport and Storage (‘T&S’) networks will require the characterisation of geologic storage basins and formations as well as the design Read the full article…
