Industry and Science Growing Business Investment Resources University of Queensland - Surat Deep Aquifer Appraisal Project UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND

This is an evolution of the prev.University of Queensland-Cwlth-ACALET, Carbon Geostorage Initiative. The project has two main themes:-
A. Low cost, dynamic calibration of wide-area, deep aquifer dynamics in a sparse data synclinal setting. This comprises field operations (entering and testing existing deep, suspended gas exploration wells) and significant geotechnical and techno-economic study work, leading to calibrated groundwater, field development and Carbon Capture & Storage deployment scenarios.
B. Social science: public engagement & education on Carbon Capture & Storage in the context of future energy technology choices, leading to improved engagement and educational outcomes.
Both themes support large numbers of Australian and Chinese PhDs, where possible 'paired' to study similar phenomena in each country. There is significant Chinese research and industry support. Carbon Capture and Storage Research Development Fund and University of Queensland.

Industry and Science Growing Business Investment Resources Improving safety and efficiency of CO2 pipelines ENERGY PIPELINES CRC LTD.

Safety and efficiency are key to the transportation of dense phase CO2 for Carbon Capture & Storage projects.
Recent Research & Development has shown that fracture control models for gas pipelines are not valid for dense phase CO2 pipelines. Therefore current CO2 pipeline Standards require Carbon Capture & Storage projects opting to deploy dense phase CO2 pipelines to undertake full scale testing to validate their design. This project will develop a new fracture control model for CO2 pipelines, validated by two full scale fracture tests. The dispersion of the CO2 from the tests into the atmosphere will be measured allowing validation of CO2 dispersion models. This is critical in mitigating hazards posed by releases of CO2 from pipelines. The project will also explore financial benefits which could be gained by operating long distance pipelines at higher pressure. The outcomes of this project will provide confidence in critical areas of CO2 pipeline design and operation, improving the technical and financial viability of CO2 pipelines.
