High-level CO2 storage capacity study on a depleted gas field
Oil and gas operator
CO2Tech were tasked with quickly appraising a depleted gas field for potential CO2 storage.
CO2Tech have nearly 20 years of experience of delivering projects to the Australian Standard for geological storage of carbon dioxide (AS ISO 27914:2019).
CO2Tech have experienced technical experts that have actually worked on geological sequestration projects so can provide advice that is relevant to commercial CCS projects and based on real world experience.
What we did
CO2Tech extensively reviewed and provided recommendations on:
- Provided a greater and more realistic insight to the storage capacity of the completed gas field considering all storage mechanisms
- Estimated the storage capacity of the nearby saline aquifers which would increase the overall capacity
- Provided a high-level analysis of containment and injectivity
- Well integrity assessment of existing wells
Indicative capacity of depleted gas field for CO2 storage
Potential for extending CO2 storage in nearby saline aquifers
Data gaps and key risks
Recommendations on future steps
CO2Tech provided significant cost-savings to the client when compared to performing the same task in-house.
CO2Tech provided the client with an expert independent analysis that they could use to progress their CO2 emissions abatement plans quickly and efficiently.
CO2Tech had the expertise and experience to quickly turn around the clients’ request within 4-week timeframe.
