Distinguished Lecturer: CO2 Storage Resource Management System – Application and Learnings from World’s First Booking

August 28 @ 4:45 pm - 7:30 pm

$40.00 – $70.00

Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our August 2024 SPE WA Technical Evening Meeting.

About the Presentation

Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is experiencing rapid growth and the ability to classify and compare projects across the globe is of increasing importance. The CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS) has been designed to provide the common framework and is increasingly being applied across the industry. The SRMS has been seeded from the widely used Petroleum Resources Management System (PRMS), which makes it ideal for industry professionals familiar with the concepts of classification and categorization.

The SRMS was applied to an onshore project by an Australian oil and gas company in 2021 and led to the world’s first public reporting of CO2 storage quantities under the SRMS classification system. Standard reserves workflows and systems were modified for CO2 evaluation and reporting, resulting in a streamlined processes throughout the organization. Multiple benefits were realized such as standardized evaluation and reporting, a unified language across the company, and enhanced formality in CCUS reporting.

As more CCUS projects are proposed, a robust classification system has become vital to communicate consistent terminology, valuation methodologies, and reporting systems for identifying project status and differential between projects. The application of the SRMS is highly recommended for stakeholders, financiers, or regulatory bodies involved in the commercial development of a CCUS project.
