Sissel Grude new BIGCCS PhD

Sissel Grude defended her PhD degree on October 22. Under the project title «Geophysical monitoring of CO2 injection in saline aquifers», she has studied time-lapse seismic monitoring of pressure and saturation changes caused by CO2 injection in a saline aquifer. Field data from the Tubåen Formation at the Snøhvit field is used in the analysis. Read More

Blog: Avoiding leakage from wells – the key to safe CO2 storage

Blogger: Malin Torsæter Are you interested in saving our climate by enabling large-scale Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)? Then you are (believe it or not) also interested in advancing today’s well technology. Why? Because wells are the «gatekeepers» of stored CO2! Their quality will determine for how long CO2 remains imprisoned in deep subsurface reservoirs. Read More

Blog: IMPACTS and BIGCCS visit partners in Bochum in Germany

Blogger: Sigmund Størset Ruhr Universität Bochum has over 40,000 students and 4,500 permanent employees.
