Sixth EAGE Workshop on CO2 Geological Storage

Welcome to the Sixth EAGE Workshop on 

CO2 Geological Storage

4 - 6 April, 2022 | London, UK

Workshop Overview

To meet the Paris Agreement’s ambition on tackling climate change, large scale implementation of CarbonCapture and Storage (CCS) is considered essential. For successful realisation of CCS, it is vital to build confidence that injected CO2 is permanently and safely retained in the sub-surface and that CO2 storage can be deployed at the required scale. This has been investigated in several research initiatives during the last decade and the objective of this workshop is to present key advances made, discuss remaining technology gaps and review a way forward.

Workshop Scope

The workshop aims to examine the learnings gained from the global portfolio of large-scale CCUS projects and how storage-hub concepts may help deliver the massive increases in future CO2 storage volumes. Key technological advances made in areas such as saline aquifer and depleted hydrocarbonfield storage will be reviewed and new developments in monitoring and CO2 utilisation will be presented. The workshop will also examine the benefits and challenges posed by integrating CCUS into the energy and industry ecospheres to help deliver the emissions reductions necessary to reach UNFCC climate goals.

Participant's Profile 

Professionals from industry, research institutes and academia, as well as regulators and policy makers, will come together to exchange insights from project experiences, the latest developments, and current and future innovations in technology. We encourage oral presentations and posters exploring all aspects of the transition from demonstration to large-scale CO 2 geological storage. Beyond the geoscience, but within the Workshop Theme, we welcome applications in other fields such as risk communication, social and regulatory issues, and resources required to meet the challenges to safely implement large-scale CCUS.

The last CO2 Storage workshop was held in 2018 in Utrecht.

The workshop will address state-of-the-art insights on overall integrity of CO2 storage

Submission Topics

  1. Industrial-scale CO 2 storage projects – beyond demonstration
    • Insights and learnings from operational projects
    • Future large-scale CCUS projects, regional and global roadmaps

  2. Storage hub concept – upscaling from 1 MTpa to 10 MTpa and beyond
    • Value-chains and business cases for CCUS
    • How to deliver large-scale projects – standardised engineering, partnerships, funding and/or incentives from Government?
    • Competition for resources and pore space, and how to manage, e.g. offshore CO 2 site and wind farm co-location, hydrogen and gas storage versus CO2.

  3. Saline Aquifer Storage
    • Injection strategies and pressure management
    • Conversion of static capacities to dynamic realities
    • Migration-assisted storage – can the theory be translated to a viable business model?

  4. Depleting and Depleted Hydrocarbon Field Storage
    • The Joule-Thomson dilemma – engineering challenges and risks
    • Geo-mechanical hysteresis – impact on reservoir resilience, safe injection rate limits and final storage masses
    • Intermittent injection and its impact on storage system integrity and stability
    • Legacy well integrity
    • CO2 -EOR as a pathway to permanent CO2 storage

  5. Storage Monitoring
    • Demonstrated examples and new technologies
    • Affordable and fit for purpose MMV strategies – tailored solutions for maximum. effectiveness and value
    • Monitoring challenges and risks, e.g. co-located CO2 storage sites with other industries, post-closure reservoir pressure monitoring

  6. Storage Safety
    • Demonstrated examples of safety and environmental impact management 
    • Leakage-risk quantification, prevention, and remediation
    • Long-term safety and post hand-over liability

  7. Strategic priorities and future evolution of the CCUS industry
    • Change and impact of Government policy and regulation from around the globe, e.g. EUSET plan and CCUS Roadmap, the North Sea Transition, outcomes of COP26 targets
    • Public perception and successful strategies for engaging with society
    • What do NDCs and Net Zero targets mean for CO2 storage industry?
    • Synergies between CO2 storage and different technologies, e.g. hydrogen, geothermal,CO2 mineralisation, direct air capture and other negative emissions technologies

EAGE's Energy Transition Hub

There are enormous opportunities for geoscientists and engineers in the energy transition. As the leading multidisciplinary geoscience and engineering association, EAGE is proud to facilitate knowledge and skills transfer. To help you connect with all relevant opportunities, we created a dedicated hub where you can find everything EAGE is doing around the energy transition: conferences, workshops, publications, learning resources, communities and more!
