Connect with us at the EAGE Asia Pacific Workshop on CO2 Geological Storage which runs on 23–25 August in Perth, Australia.
Anna Stork, Silixa’s Senior Geophysicist, will describe a case study from the ACT DigiMon project, a project that seeks to incorporate Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) into an early warning system for detecting CO2 leakage at a CO2 storage site. A key goal is to improve the Technology Readiness Level of DAS for active and passive seismic monitoring through the development of data processing workflows.
DAS shows good promise for characterizing the shallow subsurface using surface waves studies. The results indicate that near-surface velocity variations can be determined from DAS data with high-resolution, providing a potentially useful approach for monitoring CO2 leakages at shallow depths.
Geological storage of CO2 is an enabler of a wide variety of business models more aligned with a Decarbonization of the Energy market. Multiple organizations and governments are committed to Net Zero emissions by 2050 or earlier and the number of commitments is expected to increase exponentially.
Can depleted oil/gas fields and saline aquifers provide suitable CO2 storage sites in terms of capacity and scalability? And what are the best risk assessment and monitoring methods and technologies? These subjects and more will be discussed at the EAGE Asia Pacific Workshop!
