CCS value written in a bowtie

LEE HUNT GEOPHYSICIST, CARBON ALPHA, LHUNT@CARBONALPHA.COM All aspects of a CCS project are tied back to risk management; value in the geosciences, including seismic, are directly related to their role in reducing project risk.   Summary Much of the world is looking to carbon capture and storage (CCS) to reduce anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The number of carbon storage projects under development has exploded - with over 200 currently proposed projects worldwide (Hauber, 2023). Geoscientists engaged in subsurface work on these projects are interested in providing the most value possible to these projects. But where is that value added? [...]

CCS expertise and analogical reasoning

LEE HUNT CARBON ALPHA, LHUNT@CARBONALPHA.COM ERIC STREET CARBON ALPHA GRAHAM HACK CARBON ALPHA We provoke the development of geoscientific expertise for the early stages of CCS through analogy with fields that geoscientists already command. Introduction Recently, there has been a tremendous increase of interest in the safe and permanent underground storage of carbon dioxide (CCS). This has been driven by governmental enactment of climate goals in many parts of the world. These goals have been powerfully manifested in several ways, including through penalties and incentives. Canadian efforts in this regard have included the Government of Canada’s (GOC) rapidly escalating carbon [...]
