Last week Helen Bone, Georgina Lockham, and David Whitworth travelled to London to represent Merlin at the PESGB ‘CCS4G’ (Carbon Capture & Storage for Geoscientists) symposium. Despite the weather and rail strikes this inaugural event was well attended by a cross section of the energy community representing the full project cycle of the CCS industry, from regulators and public bodies to operators, consultancies, and tech start-ups.
The event was designed to communicate the key technical challenges of CCS from the perspective of geoscientists and reservoir engineers. Topics covered ranged from large-scale storage targets and the holistic application of subsurface geoscience skills to pore scale fluid interactions and advances in CO2 imaging techniques, such as 4D rock physics.
The timing of the PESGB winter social to immediately follow the event enabled discussions to continue into the evening. As well as offering the chance to catch up with old friends and colleagues, it was an opportunity to make new contacts already working in the CCS sphere.
Merlin stands ready to help add value to your carbon sequestration projects, building on our existing subsurface technical expertise and ever-increasing CCS portfolio. You can learn more about our published CCS risking work here, and about our subsurface consulting here.
