Workflow Print E-mail

The CarbonWorkFlow process enables 3D-GEO to develop a risk model for our clients to optimise the workflow and life cycle of all facets of a CO2 geological storage project. Working both with government and private industry in all aspects of the resource sector allows us to address regulatory, safety and environmental issues. Leveraging off 150 years of experience in the resource sectors we can integrate current geological datasets, interpretation and proven field technologies to develop full geostatistical reservoir models for the project life cycle.

A project basin or permit scale evaluation to select optimised sites for CO2 storage is fast tracked through our extensive knowledge of basins worldwide. One of our proven teams will complete an initial review of available data and geological storage opportunities with details of key geological risk property minimisation. This is achieved from our internal databases, geological reports, seismic surveys, well logs, geochemistry, rock properties and GIS datasets. All projects full under a characterisation process that includes economic and environmental criteria.

Optimised storage locations are then short listed and ranked according to key CCS risk evaluation so clients are integrated within the workflow. Once the shortlist of site locations are agreed upon, a high resolution study of the subsurface is completed to further refine the key risks in long term storage of CO2. Such models will assess storage cross contamination from water resources, geothermal resources and petroleum resources. 3D-GEO has completed a world’s first multi resource model over the Gippsland Basin that has aided in the understanding of such situations. The high resolution reservoir and seal model are populated with geological properties to assess reservoir capacity, injectivity, and containment including injection rates, fluid displacement and storage performance.

A baseline is created through the latest earth monitoring techniques to provide social and environmental safety during future drilling. Working with world experts in earth monitoring sensors with services provided for the United Nations, monitoring CO2 storage is achieved.
