A Technical Basis for Carbon Dioxide Storage (A4 210x297mm)

Members of the CO2 Capture Project
Edited by Cal Cooper, ConocoPhillips

This book provides a guide to the major technical issues related to the subsurface geological storage of carbon dioxide. The target audience is people interested in CO2 capture and storage (CCS). It contains both general information and specific details about technologies and applications that are likely to be used in CCS. Within this publication a number of case studies are summarized to give a deeper insight into the technical issues involved. Topics covered include:

Site Selection: Modes of CO2 storage; Desirable geological characteristics of storage sites; CO2 trapping mechanisms; Subsurface characterization workflow; Quantifying subsurface uncertainties; Special site characterization issues for CO2 storage.

Well Construction and Integrity: Life cycle stages; Site selection and development; Operations; Closure; Post-closure.

Monitoring Programmes for CO2 Storage: Selecting monitoring tools and techniques; Models for performance monitoring; Limits of measurement and concern; Monitoring tools and techniques; Examples of monitoring techniques in action; Concluding remarks.

Development, Operation and Closure of CO2 Storage Facilities: Introduction: Oil and gas field lifecycle analogy; CO2 storage project lifecycle: Project certification and uncertainty management.
