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.
