Le Bourget (December 2-10 2015) Geogreen attend the COP21 in a common booth with  ClubCO2, CO2GeoNet, GCCSI and IEAGHG. - Yann Le Gallo  and Gilles Munier  will be available to answer questions from the public in the Climate Generations Area (stand A10).

A side event on Carbon Capture Storage organised by ClubCO2, CO2GeoNet, GCCSI and IEAGHG will take place on December 2 at 1:15pm in room 10 in the Climate Generations Areas (open to the public) "CO2 Capture and Storage: a proven and safe technology vital for completing the climate change mitigation" portfolio"


The underground storage of the CO2 captured at industrial facilities (production of gas, electricity, cement, steel ...) is a key technology for reducing CO2 emissions and can even help to generate negative emissions when it is combined with CO2 capture at biomass plants or directly from the atmosphere. Synergies are possible with other technologies such as geothermal, energy storage and various CO2 uses.
An update will be made on concrete operations in France and in the world (over 20 Mt of CO2 per year currently captured and then injected in deep geological formations), followed by an interactive session with the audience to discuss the role of this technology and the challenges facing full-scale deployment in the race to limit global warming to 2°C.

Rio de Janeiro (April 28-29, 2015) – Jonathan Royer-Adnot presented the main results from Geogreen  obtained via CO2-Dissolved to the 3rd Brazilian Congress on CO2 in the oil, gas and biofuels industries, organized in Rio by Brazilian Petroleum Institute
The 3rd Edition of the Brazilian Congress on CO2, which brings together the academic community and the industry of petroleum, gas and biofuels bring the main debate towards the “Challenges & Strategies of CO2 in the Brazilian and global scenarios”.

The topics to be addressed include research on proper material to carry CO2, chemical transformation process of the gas in raw material that can be used to manufacture products, geological storage of CO2 and its impacts on the local micro biota.

<![CDATA[Geostock is majority share holder]]>Fri, 20 Dec 2013 15:10:58 GMThttp://www.geogreen.eu/news/geostock-is-majority-share-holderPhoto
Rueil Malmaison (29 November 2013): Following the delay of the global Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) market mainly due to the consequences of the economic crisis, the 3 shareholders of Geogreen have decided to reshuffle their equity share in the company. Geostock has then at year end 2013 95.5% (originally 40%) of the company, while IFP Investissements has a 3% equity (originally 40%), and BRGM the remaining 1.5% (originally 20%). 
..

As the major shareholder, Geostock shall then back-up Geogreen during a period of 3 years, at the end of which the shareholders shall have the possibility to come back to their original equities in the company.
Geogreen shall in 2014 offer services mainly to Geostock group companies, while at the same time, consolidating its activities in the 3 major fields related to CCS: enhanced oil recovery through CO2 injection (CO2-EOR), risk analysis of oil and gas projects containing CO2, and collaborative research activities at both French and European levels

Abu Dhabi (November 6-7, 2013): Yann Le Gallo participates as a panelist to the Expert Group Meeting on “Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage in ESCWA Member States: Enhancing the Sustainability of the Energy System in a Carbon Constrained Development Context”. The objective of this meeting was to offer a forum to discuss the status and viability of CCS in the region and particularly in the GCC countries in which significant investments in R&D on CCS and CCS pilot facilities were allotted.

The focus of the workshop was on the coupling of CCS with enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and the synergy it creates in simultaneously improving the CCS technology for climate change mitigation while benefitting from the production of oil and release of injected natural gas. At the conclusion of the meeting the high level panel made recommendations on the way forward to accelerate the deployment of CCS in the region.

<![CDATA[Geogreen presents some of the results from the MANAUS Project to the IEA-GHG Risk Assessment Network]]>Thu, 20 Jun 2013 14:46:24 GMThttp://www.geogreen.eu/news/geogreen-presents-some-of-the-results-from-the-manaus-project-to-the-iea-ghg-risk-assessment-networkPhoto
Trondheim (June 11-13, 2013): Yann Le Gallo presented some of the results of the MANAUS Project on quantification of migration risks through fault of a geological storage at the IEA-GHG's Risk Assessment and Monitoring Meeting, organized by the IEA GHG and Statoil.  

From the IEA GHG:  The joint meeting of Networks of Risk Analysis and Monitoring of the IEA-GHG was held in Trondheim, Norway in June 2013 in the premises of Statoil research center. A series of presentations of major oil companies and research organizations have highlighted the challenges of monitoring and risks of CO2 injection. The pattern and effects of CO2 injection from three key large-scale projects: Decatur demonstration project for CO2 storage in Mount Simon sandstone in the Illinois Basin, the CO2 storage project in In-Salah in Algeria, and the injection and storage project Snøhvit in the Norwegian North Sea were discussed. Important site-specific data acquisition and modeling was also presented from different projects: Sleipner (Norway), Goldeneye (UK), Ketzin (Germany), Aneth (Utah), Cranfield (Mississippi) and Otway (Australia).

The main benefit of full-scale (1M+ te CO2) demonstration is the experience gained from large-scale injection into different types of reservoir. All three key projects involved detailed seismic monitoring which was used to track the progress of CO2 plumes. The pattern and rate of migration could then be compared with different types of reservoir model. These three sites, and the other examples presented at the meeting, have highlighted the strength of field demonstration, particularly at large-scale. Although techniques like 4D and 3D seismic are expensive they are valuable for tracking plume development with time. They also provide a history-matching template to compare and integrate with different models. Improving model performance is an area for future research.

The risk assessment component of the meeting explored a number of themes including the impact of regulation, the necessity for incentives and the perception of risk from different stakeholders. Risks posed by technical constraints specifically fault stability and induced seismicity were also discussed. The attitude to risk across integrated capture – storage programs was explored during the meeting. Utility companies regard power supply contracts, and escalating capital and operating costs associated with CCS, as the biggest areas of uncertainty. In contrast, storage operators are more concern with reservoir uncertainty. There was a general consensus that both regulators and those directly involved in CO2 storage need to work together to resolve the challenges facing them. This approach has already been adopted in the US and Norway.

The meeting concluded that mitigation and remediation could be improved by adopting practices from other industries, for example gas storage. Different risk assessment methodologies can be effective for anticipating uncertainties. It is also clear that communication, especially with the public, needs to be unambivalent and presented in an appropriate style that can be understood. A key message to convey is that there needs to be a balance between risk and benefits and not just risk in isolation.

Trondheim (June 4-6, 2013): Yann Le Gallo presented the main results of VASCO Project at the 7th Trondheim CCS Conference, organized by the SINTEF .  

Photo
The VASCO project targets four CO2 valorization strategies: CO2-EOR around the Mediterranean Sea, industrial use, bioremediation via micro-algae, and lastly the geological storage of any excess CO2. This project is led by Geogreen and Pôle Risques in collaboration with BRGM, IFREMER, IFPEN, GDF-SUEZ, and Air Liquide

The project is financed by the French Energy and Environmental Management Agency (ADEME), local public entities (PACA RegionSAN Ouest Provence, Communautés du Pays de Martigues), the Marseille Port Authority (GPMM), and industrial stakeholders (Air Liquide, ArcelorMittal, Ciments Calcia Italcementi Group, EDF, E.On, GDF-Suez)..
