Webinars have become a cornerstone of NCCS’ dissemination and communication strategy. Below you can find the webinars scheduled to run this autumn, including a description and link for registration. The webinars will not be recorded this year.
Shale caprock creep as a fracture healing mechanism. How does exposure to CO2 alter caprock behaviour?
Several types of laboratory tests have been conducted over the years to assess on the one hand, shale caprock's ability to deform in a ductile manner under constant stress conditions, known as creep behaviour, and on the other hand, its reaction to fluid exposure in terms of stiffness and strength changes.
Construction and utilisation of a geological and geomechanical model of the Southern North Sea focusing on the Bunter Sandstone
The British Geological Survey is a world leader in CCS with over 20 years' experience at the forefront of CO2 storage research and includes the largest dedicated UK storage research group.
Hybrid concept sorbent (VSA) – membrane for post-combustion CO2 capture from Industrial Flue Gases
The cost of capture is a key barrier for widespread deployment of CCS. Hybrid concepts combine more than one CO2 capture technology, normally two, in an arrangement that leads to improved capture performance.
CCS regulation: taking stake and looking ahead
The webinar will review the main advancements made in terms of facilitating carbon capture and storage (CCS) operations through legal frameworks, and look ahead at the remaining gaps in order to better integrate CCS operations into an increasingly integrated energy system.
NCCS WEBINAR series 2022 - The Norwegian CCS Research Centre
The Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS) is a Centre for Environment-Friendly Energy Research (FME). NCCS aims to fast-track CCS by working closely with industry on research that addresses major barriers to CCS in Norway, Europe, and elsewhere in the world.
Webinar: Low-carbon operation of thermal power cycles: present status and future perspectives in propulsion and power-generation applications
The webinar will suggest a rationale for the further development of state-of-the-art thermal power cycles (i.e. reciprocating engines and gas turbines) towards a low-carbon future.
Webinar Ensemble simulations with MRST with examples from CO2 foam simulation
Recent work investigating the effect of reservoir heterogeneity on the efficiency of CO2 mobility control in saline aquifers, has made use of the newly introduced ensemble module in the MATLAB Reservoir Simulation Toolbox (MRST).
NCCS Webinar - Quantitative monitoring at Smeaheia and Sleipner
The webinar will present recent advances in geophysical monitoring for large-scale offshore CO2 storage. Bastien Dupuy will show how quantitative monitoring can be carried out combining different data and several inversion steps. Application to real data at Sleipner will give insights in CO2 saturation and spatial distribution. Baseline models and the implications for monitoring plans at Smeaheia will be described in the second part of the seminar.
NCCS Webinar - CO2 storage with mobility control
The webinar will present recent work performed on mobility control of CO2 for aquifer storage application. Unfavourable mobility contrast between injected CO2 and formation brine at reservoir conditions can result in low utilisation of aquifer storage which could be improved if efficient mobility control methods could be implemented for the injected CO2.
NCCS Webinars - Lessons Learned Solvent Stability
The webinar will concern chemical stability/degradation of solvents candidates for CO2 capture. Solrun Johanne Vevelstad will present lessons learned from studies which included impact of the molecular structure and formation pathways. Hypothesis based on literature data and in-house competence for amines will be suggested.
NCCS Webinars - Innovation in FMEs
The webinar will concern innovation and innovation management, and will have two parts. In the first part, Sigmund Størset will be present main findings from his Master of Technology Management thesis, titled "Managing open innovation process in large university-industry research programmes", which used FMEs as a case study. The second part will concern activities planned or underway in the NCCS Innovation and Technology Transfer task.
