Sleipner CO₂ securely stored deep beneath seabed, in spite of unexpected Hugin fracture discovery
General readers of Nature may now think that the proposition to store carbon dioxide in deep geological strata is doomed to fail (Monastersky 2013). This is far from the case, as a more balanced review could easily have ...
Measurement, Monitoring and Verification: Enhanced Oil Recovery and Carbon Dioxide Storage
This report assesses the differences between monitoring technology requirements for CO2 storage in a saline or depleted hydrocarbon reservoir and in a hydrocarbon reservoir, when CO2 injection is used for enhanced oil ...
CO₂ storage and Enhanced Oil Recovery in the North Sea: Securing a low-carbon future for the UK
This report shows that accelerating deployment of CCS can enable CO2- EOR in the UKCS. Part of the CO2 that would otherwise need to go directly to dedicated storage in CCS projects can be used to drive CO2–EOR. That gives ...
SCCS Recommendations and Conference 2014 Report - A CCS future for Europe:catalysing North Sea action
It is unequivocal that the continued unabated use of fossil fuels is no longer an option if the world is to avoid "severe, pervasive and irreversible” damage from the impacts of climate change. Carbon Capture and Storage ...
SCCS Recommendations and Conference 2013 Executive Summary - Unlocking North Sea CO2 Storage for Europe: Practical actions for the next five years
CARBON dioxide emissions are the major cause of climate change: that is unequivocal. To limit the effects, we must reduce the amount of fossil carbon combusted and emitted as CO . Carbon capture and storage 2 (CCS) is ...

CO₂-EOR: Security of Storage
(Scottish Carbon Capture and Sporage, 2015-03-31)
Preliminary studies from CO2-EOR in Canada have suggested that, in CO2-EOR settings, solubility trapping takes place within both aqueous and hydrocarbon phases. As such it is postulated that CO2-EOR may provide a greater ...
Achieving a low-carbon society: CCS expertise and opportunity in the UK
The outcome of the Paris climate talks in late 2015 was hailed as a “turning point” for international action on climate change, with 195 countries agreeing to limit the increase in average global temperatures to 1.5oC by ...
Net Zero Carbon Scotland: Perspectives on shared objectives
The Scottish Government’s draft Energy Strategy has been broadly welcomed across different sectors of Scottish society. The document sets out ambitious targets for the long-term, sustained decarbonisation of Scotland’s ...
