PGS Takes the Lead as Preferred Partner for Carbon Storage

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 1/24/2022, Location: Europe

PGS will acquire new geophysical data in 2022 for two of the largest CO2 storage projects in the world. CO2 storage is essential to reduce carbon emissions and meet net-zero targets. The company has been supporting CCS projects with reliable geophysical data for some time and is committed to enabling the energy transition.

A new case study about a PGS collaboration with Equinor on long-term monitoring of the Sleipner field in the North Sea, demonstrates how a team of geophysics experts from both companies has been leading the way with broadband seismic monitoring of CO2 sites.

Julien Oukili, Geophysical Support Manager at PGS says, ”In the early days of CO2 monitoring, it was claimed that the CO2 plume was ‘easy to see’ but more recent investigations have revealed that may not be true – it seems high-quality broadband data is needed to deliver accurate CCS monitoring and measure plume and overburden evolution over time.”

Commitment to the Energy Transition

PGS offers a range of carbon storage services from identification, characterization and monitoring of the storage sites to help our customers plan, develop and operate these sites efficiently and safely. Advanced seismic imaging can provide answers to crucial questions such as, will the gas accumulate as expected within the reservoir? Or, how will it spread and how secure is the reservoir seal?

PGS’ existing data library provides fast access for the assessment of potential carbon storage areas and the company’s expertise in seismic processing sets benchmarks for future CO2 monitoring projects.
