Getting to grips with CO2 transport for offshore storage

We delivered our third knowledge-sharing webinar in February, which focused on transporting carbon dioxide (CO2) in varying volumes to offshore storage sites, and the opportunities as well as challenges involved.

If you missed the webinar or would like to hear the presentations again, download the recording here.

Detailed research into preparing for large-scale CO2 transport is being carried out by our project partners at SINTEF, TNO, Imperial College London and the Institute for Energy Technology. The webinar programme underlined the range of expertise within the ALIGN-CCUS team, and the Europe-wide nature of the project, as well as its value to the delivery of commercial CCS projects.

The four presentations were:

  • Ragnhild Skagestad (SINTEF, Norway) on CO2 transport by ship and subsequent offloading;
  • Marielle Koenen (TNO, Netherlands) on preventing injectivity impairment by salt precipitation during batch-wise CO2 injection
  • Arne Dugstad (Institute for Energy Technology, Norway) on impurities in the CO2 stream and when corrosion becomes an issue for materials used
  • Anna Korre (Imperial College London, UK) on flexible CO2 transport and storage networks

Peter van Os of TNO, the ALIGN-CCUS co-ordinator, provided a project overview and chaired a live Q&A during the webinar.

Our next webinar will be held in June so keep in touch via Twitter @alignccus, our newsletter and our dedicated event feed.
