A critical Step by Step Approach is needed for Successful CCUS Project
-Key learning from recent CCUS project was effort should be focused on Successful CCUS project, not just Permitting or regulatory approval. Other learnings are:
- A step by step approach from site screening to Site selection and then Site Characterization
- Managing uncertainty is key; range of subsurface realizations are needed to cover the range of uncertainties and risks
- Models are used for identifying data, but also for monitoring CO2 plume propagation with time and it’s verification with modeled forecast.
- Focus of uncertainty management should be on all three critical elements of CCUS project; CAPACITY, INJECTIVITY & CONTAINMENT
- Social & regulatory issues are equally important as are G&G and the technical issues
