Carbon Capture and Storage 2013
14 - 15 January 2013
AAPG, Main Geological Society events
The Geological Society, Burlington House, London
From Research to Implementation
The potential of carbon capture and storage is starting to be realised and there are several industrial-scale projects already in operation globally. Shell, for example, has recently approved a $1.36bn CCS project in Canada. This level of commitment builds on the many industry-academic partnerships already in existence and sets a precedent for the future of CCS in the commercial sector.
But many challenges still remain for CCS, including how best to utilise or dispose of carbon once it has been captured. How should CO2 be secured for transport? What are the risks associated with sequestration? How easy is it to draw a line from carbon capture to enhanced oil recovery? These are the questions being asked by industry geologists looking for a way to justify CCS at both the operational and commercial level.
Following on from the highly successful inaugural conference in 2011, AAPG and the Geological Society of London are proud to announce Carbon Capture and Storage 2013: From Research to Implementation. The programme will feature a host of presentations from a variety of CCS experts currently working with the oil and gas industry and academia. There will also be a chance to get the perspective of industry professionals working on the latest projects taking place on and offshore.
- Learn how to meet the technical and economic challenges of investing in CCS
- Discuss the potential for CCS to become commonplace in oil and gas production
- Explore the prospect of treating CO2 as a commodity instead of a pollutant
- Hear about the latest CCS projects being undertaken in Europe and the United States
- Network with expert speakers and industry associates
