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.
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.
