September’19 Technical Luncheon: CO2 Shallow Release Experiment

September 17, 2019 @ 11:45 am - 1:30 pm

Free – $60.00

SPE WA are proud to present the details of our September technical luncheon.

Understanding the migration of CO2 in the shallow subsurface is the focus of the CSIRO Energy led In-Situ Lab shallow release project near Harvey, Western Australia. Activities include the design and deployment of surface and bottom-hole equipment to enable injection and monitoring of CO2 migration from the point of release, at a depth of ~350 m, into a major fault-zone in the shallow subsurface. The Harvey-2 stratigraphic well originally drilled in 2015 to a depth of 1350 m was recompleted and converted to a 400 m deep CO2 injector. A newly drilled monitoring well was heavily instrumented and located within 10 m of the Harvey-2 injector and a shallow groundwater well (30m) was installed for environmental monitoring. In February 2019 this well configuration was used to conduct a controlled CO2 release experiment using a small volume of food grade CO2.
