2020 Pre-ACT webinar series

Pre-ACT Webinars

During the spring of 2020, the Pre-ACT project arranged a series of webinars summarizing important findings from nearly three years of research on topics ranging from pre-injection modelling/experimental studies and novel monitoring concepts, to conformance verification strategies, decision making guidelines, and CO2 storage case studies in the North Sea. The webinars were open to the public and included a Q&A part. This turned out to be a very efficient means of communication in times of travel/event restrictions.

  • Pre-ACT webinar #1: March 24th, 10:00 AM CET, 2020
    • Part 1: Pressure propagation and saturation changes in reservoirs displaying geological heterogeneity (Hayley Vosper, BGS)
    • Part 2: Acoustic emission testing - Investigation of the footprint of a pressure plume (Pierre Cerasi, SINTEF)
  • Pre-ACT webinar #2: March 31th, 10:00 AM CET, 2020 
    • Assessing monitoring effectiveness in CO2 storage operations using a novel conformance verification workflow and decision analysis (Eduardo Barros, TNO; Alv-Arne Grimstad, SINTEF)
