CO2ReMoVe Closing Conference

29th February 2012, Rueil-Malmaison, France
The CO2ReMoVe project has been researching predictive performance assessment and monitoring and verification techniques for CO2 storage. The project started in March 2006 and is carried out by a consortium of research, industrial and service organisations, all with extensive experience in the geological storage of CO2. Over the last five years the consortium has had the opportunity to integrate their experience at both industrial- and pilot-scale geological storage sites aimed at testing specific technologies and methodologies.
The project is now in its sixth and final year and the consortium is pleased to invite you to the final conference where the results will be presented.
The conference will give you new and in many cases unpublished insights into the performance of actual CO2 storage projects, give results of new monitoring and performance assessment techniques, and explain how the results are used in the European regulatory processes.
Who should attend?
As a researcher, policymaker or industry representative, you should attend this conference if you would like access to the cutting-edge in geological CO2 storage research results, stor- age demonstrations and regulatory development on CO2 stor- age in Europe and abroad. You should attend this conference if you would like the opportunity to network with the researchers who develop and test monitoring techniques and performance and risk assessment tools for CO2 storage and if you are interested in learning what the CO2ReMoVe research project can do for you.
Storage sites studied by the CO2ReMoVe project
The CO2ReMoVe research partners have had direct access to actual data from all the world’s large-scale storage sites plus a number of pilot-scale projects.
In Salah – Algeria
In Salah is the world’s first onshore industrial-scale CO2 storage site. CO2 injection started in 2004, at a rate of about 0.9 Mt per year. Key performance issues relate to pressure evolution, fracture enhanced fluid flow and topseal integrity
Sleipner – Norway
Sleipner is the world’s first CO2 injection project aimed at emissions mitigation. The Sleipner CO2 storage operation commenced in 1996, and remains the world’s most mature large-scale demonstration of storage technology with around 13 Mt of CO2 currently stored. Key performance issues relate to plume migration and detailed reservoir flow processes.
Snøhvit – Norway
Snøhvit injection commenced in 2008 into a deep saline aquifer beneath the Snohvit gasfield. Key performance issues are pressure control and reservoir heterogeneity.

Ketzin – Germany
Ketzin is a pilot-scale project injecting into a relatively shallow saline aquifer (around 600 m depth). Ketzin has a very comprehensive monitoring programme and the key issue is performance prediction and reservoir heterogeneity.

K12-B – The Netherlands
K12-B is a pilot-scale project, injecting into a depleted gasfield at great depth (> 3500 m), beneath as ecure salt seal. Well integrity and injection performance are the key issues.
Kaniow – Poland
Kaniow is a pilot site for CO2 storage in coal seams. The site now provides a valuable opportunity to monitor the post- injection phase of storage evolution.

Weyburn – Canada
A large-scale EOR project in an oilfield near Weyburn, Saskatchewan, using CO2 captured from a coal gasification power plant. Injection started in 2000 with more than 16 Mt of CO2 now stored. Surface monitoring for leakage integrity is a key issue.
The scope of CO2ReMoVe is immense with its wide range of site geology, injection strategies and settings giving unrivalled opportunity to compare and test different performance prediction and MMV technologies.
