CO2 storage and groundwater management – work program modules

967 views

Published on

The Groundwater and Storage interactions project arose out of a meeting on the shoulder of the Greenhouse Gas Technologies Conference in Amsterdam in 2010. It was decided to concentrate initially on the Australian Flagships projects. On 3 May 2011 Australian researchers and government agencies met and presented their work to date.

In these slides, the Global CCS Institute presents on CO2 Storage and Groundwater Management – Work Program Modules

CO2 storage and groundwater management – work program modules

  1. 1. GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTETheme 4CO2 Storage and Groundwater ManagementWORK PROGRAM MODULESWWW.GLOBALCCSINSTITUTE.COM
  2. 2. GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE LOGISTICS • Evac – follow wardens – marshall area Park end of Allara Street • Facilities- through security doors or downstairs • See Agenda – Coffee about 11 – Lunch about 12:30 – Finish about 4 PM – Research • Please provide talks if you haven’t already 1
  3. 3. GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE BACKGROUND • At GHGT 10 September 2010 – 4 Thematic groups proposed • Hub Development Challenges with Clinton Fndn • Managing impacts of Storage on Groundwater with IEAGHG • Storage learning from EOR with IEAGHG • Project Integration Challenges with CSLF Technical – Initial feedback at meeting was to refer heavily to saline aquifer projects like Sleipner In Salah and Otway 2
  4. 4. GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE MODULE 1 –AUSTRALIAN FLAGSHIPS Currently dispersed groundwater expertise, data and responsibilities > Develop collaboration between key agencies and funding bodies > Focus initially on Flagships-related storage NCCSC GCCSI KNOWLED GE ANLEC GLOBAL FUNDIN G CSIRO CO2CRC SURVEYS GA
  5. 5. GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE GROUNDWATER THEMATIC DEVELOPMENT Priority driven thematic development: > starting in Australia where groundwater impact is a known key storage issue Phase One: Australia Collaboration including GA, CSIRO, CO2CRC and State Surveys Phase Two: Other Nations Collaboration including GA and CAGS +CSIRO +? Phase Three: Global Collaboration including CO2GeoNet and NETL
  6. 6. GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE AUSTRALIA’S KEY STORAGE OPTIONS Large resource – utilisation for gas- related storage – other sources too remote Large resource – access dependent on alignment of storage with groundwater extraction Moderate potential resource – limited occurrence of conventional seals Large resource – access dependent on alignment of storage with petroleum production Source: Global CCS Institute; Carbon Storage Taskforce Report 5
  7. 7. GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTEOBJECTIVE – GROUNDWATER CO2 INTERACTION • To understand the potential impacts of CO2 storage on deep groundwater resources especially for demonstration –scale projects • To inform the proponents, regulators and prospective funders of the potential impacts •To identify where these impacts may create threats and opportunities and the best way of understanding and managing these impacts •To establish a collaborative network of agencies interested in groundwater science and its interaction with geological carbon storage. •To consider what other resources may benefit from a similar analysis 6
  8. 8. GLOBAL CCS INSTITUTE AREA OF STUDY MODULE 1 • Focus on the Flagship regions – Perth, Surat/Eromanga, Gippsland – Build and collaborate on work already funded – Collaborate with interested parties and “fill the gaps” – Learn from each area. – Integrated study with a data set for multiple users. 7
