ECCSEL Training Course on monitoring large scale CCS pilot R&D facilities

The ECCSEL Training Course on monitoring large scale CCS pilots research and development facilities has been organized by CIUDEN at the Hontomín test development plant near Burgos (Spain) on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016. The date has been selected to give the participant the opportunity to visit the plant during a CO2 injection campaign.

The course has been chaired by Ton Wildenbotg (CO2GeoNet President) and organized according to the following agenda:

09:00 Registration

09:30 Welcome and introduction (Eduardo Castiñeiras, CEO CIUDEN)

09:55 CO2 geological storage. Potential development (Ton Wildenborg, CO2GeoNet President and Chairman of the course)

 

10:35 Large scale pilots worldwide for CO2 geological storage (Axel Liebscher, GFZ Head of Centre for Geological Storage CGS)

 

 

11:15 Coffee break

 

 

11:30 CO2 injection on fractured carbonates. Experiences and lessons learned in Hontomín TDP (Carlos Martínez and Alberto Ramos, Professors at Technical University of Madrid)

 

12:00 Hontomín TDP. Features, facilities and experiences (Carlos de Dios, Low Carbon Technologies Director at CIUDEN)

 

12:30 ECCSEL Transnational Access programme (Sverre Quale, ECCSEL Project Director)

 

 

13:00 Discussion

 

13:30 Lunch

 

 

15:30 CO2 injection campaign. Visit of the pilot:

 

  • Monitoring and control room
  • CO2 injection facility
  • Control networks 


 

18:00 End of the course

 

After a brief introduction on CIUDEN by Eduardo Castiñeiras (CIUDEN CEO), Sverre Quale has introduced ECCSEL, with particular reference to the aim of the consortium and the distributed laboratories. Ton Wildenborg has presented a general introduction on CCS technologies as a solution to mitigate global warming, with a hint on the main onshore pilot-scale sites in Europe (in Spain, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Italy): the development of these sites is the scope of the Horizon2020 project ENOS (“Enabling Onshore CO2 Storage in Europe). Axel Liebscher has presented an overview of the large-scale pilots worldwide for CO2 geological storage, in order to underline the monitoring-related issues (with particular reference to the Ketzin site in Germany).

After such a general introduction, the Hontomín site has been described by Carlos de Dios and the most relevant results have been presented by Carlos Martínez and Alberto Ramos.

The course has been completed by a presentation of the Transnational Access programme by Sverre Quale and a detailed visit of the Hontomín site during an experimental campaign. The visit has been an occasion to discuss on the main experimental problems of such a facility.

 

The course has been attended by about 70 participants.

 

The official agenda and all the presentations are attached to this report.
