The safe operation of geoenergy and subsurface storage sites is essential to achieve net zero
The SECURe project has significantly advanced knowledge of how best to manage subsurface geoenergy projects involving CO2 storage and unconventional hydrocarbons, paving the way for deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the UK and beyond. It has also established an international forum on environmental monitoring, a further important legacy.
It is with great sadness that we share the news that SECURe researcher Bogdan Orlić passed away suddenly earlier this month. A specialist in reservoir geomechanics, Bogdan researched and modelled well integrity as part of Work Package 2.
In the second of two articles on our 'virtual visit' to Australia, we look at how CSIRO, the national science agency, works with other government bodies and with industry to provide multi-level support for CCS and other subsurface geology projects. We also present short profiles of the projects we visited.
In the first of two articles on our 'virtual visit', we explore our key findings from Australia's considerable experience in CCS. Its significant resources sector has created an economic impetus for deployment of CCS, with projects that are several years ahead of Europe in many respects.
