Sleipner Partnership Releases CO2 Storage Data

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/12/2019, Location: Europe

Equinor and its partners will disclose datasets from the Sleipner field; the world's first offshore CCS plant, in a push to advance innovation and development on the field of CO2 storage.

Since 1996, the Sleipner field has been used as a facility for carbon capture and storage by Equinor as operator and a group of partnering companies. This is the longest ongoing project on CO2 storage in the world. Each year?about 1 million tonnes CO2?from the natural gas is?captured and stored at Sleipner. This has provided unique insight into what happens with carbon stored in the underground over longer periods of time.

"For over 20 years we have had a first-hand experience of safe storage of CO2 in a reservoir. We believe this insight can be valuable for both our industry, research communities, and others working on making CO2 storage a central part of the ongoing energy transition into the low carbon future," says Torbjorn F. Folgero, chief digital officer and senior vice president in Equinor.

All data will be published via the SINTEF-led CO2 Data Share Consortium in September this year - a partnership supported by the Norwegian CLIMIT research programme and the US Department of Energy.

Equinor has shared CO2 storage and monitoring data with the research community for the past 15 years. By making the data openly available, the Sleipner partnership and SINTEF seek to further advance both innovation and development in the field of carbon storage.

"Ever since Equinor shared the first Sleipner datasets, researchers across the world have used it to understand flow processes, enable more accurate predictions and develop methods for safe CO2 storage. Access to the Sleipner datasets can accelerate the development of knowledge and technologies essential for operating CO2 storage sites and enable faster deployment of CCS, a measure The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states is critical to limit the global warming," says Eli Aamot, executive vice president in SINTEF.
