Event description
Overview of Carbon Storage Resource Management System (SRMS) and a real-world example of a CCS injection & monitoring programme

About this event

The London SPE Net Zero Gaia committee are pleased to offer this webinar aimed at providing viewers with a better understanding of the Storage Resource Management System (SRMS) and a real-world example of a CCS injection and monitoring programme.

To deliver Net Zero targets, the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) industry must grow at a phenomenal rate. The IEA estimates that approximately 40 MT of CO2 is currently captured annually through less than 50 active projects. They state that reaching Net Zero targets is virtually impossible without CCS and in their Sustainable Development Scenario they estimate we will need to capture 840 MT/a by 2030 and over 5,000 MT/a by 2050.

Key elements in delivering this rapid growth in CCS will require skills that many petroleum engineers and geologists possess, including measuring the potential size of the storage resource and monitoring the injection and movement of injected CO2 in the subsurface.

CO2 Storage Resources Management System: Classifying and Categorizing Storable Quantities

Dr. Scott Frailey, Reservoir Engineer, Illinois State Geologic Survey

Dr. Scott Frailey is a reservoir engineer for the Illinois Geologic Survey, where he is involved with the technical aspects of the CO2 storage and CO2 EOR programs and provides technical expertise in the areas of reservoir characterization and engineering including pressure transient analyses, core analyses, well log analyses, and reservoir modeling. Previously, Scott was an associate professor of petroleum engineering at Texas Tech University and a reservoir engineer at BP Exploration (Alaska). He graduated from the University of Missouri-Rolla with B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in petroleum engineering. He is a registered professional engineer in Texas, New Mexico, Illinois, and Indiana.

Subsurface CO2-monitoring: An integral part in getting full scale CCS projects implemented

Dr. Anne-Kari Furre, Advisor in Reservoir Geophysics, Equinor ASA

Anne-Kari Furre is an advisor in reservoir geophysics with Equinor ASA. She received a PhD (Dr Ing) in drilling and engineering from NTNU in 1997.

She started her professional career as a researcher with Statoil (now Equinor) and has been working within both petroleum technology and exploration, primarily with research, but also as an operating geophysicist. Her main areas of interests are time-lapse seismic (oil, gas and CO2 monitoring), and rock physics. She has, since 2011, focussed on CO2 monitoring and is presently working both with research and towards new CCS projects, such as Northern Lights.
