Researchers in the CCS Group use experimental and numerical modelling techniques to address questions about CO2 injectivity, the mechanisms of oil mobilisation during CO2-EOR, CO2 migration and trapping from pore scale to basin scale, and the security of storage over thousands of years. These activities all contribute to a better understanding of the risk assessment, management, optimisation and cost reduction in CO2 injection operations. The group draws heavily on expertise developed in petroleum engineering disciplines such as reservoir description, fluid phase behaviour, flow in porous media, geomechanics, geochemistry and flow assurance to tackle the current subsurface technical challenges facing CCS. Postgraduate students carry out research on the fundamental understanding of CO2 behaviours in the subsurface, and also on very applied studies, some of which use field data supplied by funders and partners. The tools used include core flooding equipment, micromodel visualisation cells, pore scale network models and commercial reservoir simulation suites such as CMG and ECLIPSE.

CPD courses

The UKCCSRC offers accredited CPD courses on aspects of CCS for Early Career Researchers and professionals working in field. Past courses have covered CCS (overview course) and CO2 Storage and Monitoring. The CCS overview CPD course provides a fundamental understanding of CCS technology, including capture, transportation, and storage. The CO2 Storage and Monitoring CPD course provides an overview of that topic, beginning with fundamentals and progressing to the present state of the technology - key topics include the UK North Sea and international state of the art in understanding of storage and monitoring - generics and specifics; target formation engineering challenges and modelling approaches; economic and environmental challenges for operators. Both courses focus on recent advances in the understanding of technological challenges in their areas and examine knowledge gaps; integral to both is insight from planned and developing demonstration projects in UK and worldwide.
