By Svend Tollak Munkejord and Mona J. Mølnvik The eighth Trondheim Conference on CO2 Capture, Transport and Storage (TCCS-8) was opened yesterday (17 June) by SINTEF’s vice president for climate technologies, Dr Nils Røkke this morning. This year’s conference has 350 delegates from 26 countries, and comprehensive programme highlighting CCS science. This includes 138 oral Read More

Models, data and software for safe and efficient CO2 transport

By Svend Tollak Munkejord A two-day technical meeting and seminar in the BIGCCS CO2-transport programme took place 27–28 May in Trondheim. The first day was dedicated to technical presentations, emphasizing the activity in the task on CO2 mixture properties (a.k.a. the CO2Mix project), which will conclude this year. On the second day, the industry participants Read More

Linking laboratory experiments with seismic CO2 storage monitoring

Improving our ability to detect CCS related changes in rock properties from 4D seismic data By BIGCCS PhD student Dawid Szewczyk, NTNU Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an operation involving capturing CO2 from large sources, transporting and depositing it into storage sites. Fluid injection during subsurface CO2 storage leads to many changes in the Read More

BIGCCS – an important contribution to CCS realization

After six years of operation, BIGCCS has established a solid foothold as a leading research and innovation center in CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS). BIGCCS contributes in important arenas. The FME scheme has offered a unique opportunity to develop a platform for collaboration across disciplines and between industry players and research institutions, nationally and 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. Here you can study everything from film, language and African culture, through history, engineering and astrophysics, to gases’ thermophysical properties. And precisely because of this last thing were participants of the EU project IMPACTS gathered in Bochum two days in the Read More
