CCS4G Symposium 2024 – Super-Critical Implementation

A symposium on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) for Geoscientists

17th December 2024

Call for Abstracts

The CCS Surge: Are You Ready to Be Part of the Solution?

With the global race to net zero accelerating, carbon capture and storage (CCS) is rapidly transitioning from the drawing boards to project delivery. In 2023 alone, dozens of new CCS geological storage licenses were issued worldwide. Today across the globe a record number of projects are on the runway for FID (financial investment decision). This rapid growth presents a significant opportunity for geoscientists in our community to re-purpose their skills and expertise to apply them in what is the biggest issue of our generation.

In many ways the CCS world with its wells, reservoirs and sealing cap-rocks will be familiar to GESGB members. However, in other ways it is quite different. The twin necessities of driving down costs and ensuring long-term public safety will demand collaboration and openness like never before.

Following the success of previous years and in response to demand from the membership, the third one-day symposium from the GESGB will delve into the exciting geo-technical challenges and opportunities of geological CO2 storage, helping to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in this rapidly evolving field.

We are curating presentation abstracts from industry leaders with the following target topics:

CCS case histories

💡 Depleted reservoirs, deep saline aquifers & mineralisation
💡 Live operational projects, pilot CO2 injection, projects approaching FID

Geotechnical programme design

💡 Assessing seals and containment, storage efficiency
💡 Injectivity, measurement monitoring and verification

The symposium potentially offers opportunities for learning, research, emerging technologies, networking, collaboration and making contacts with potential partners. Plus, opportunities to discuss supply chain, employment trends, technical collaboration, public perceptions, public engagement and HSE aspects.

Short abstracts circa 500 words should be submitted for the attention of Lydia Dumont: events@ges-gb.org.uk
Abstract submission deadline: Friday 31 May 2024

Don’t miss this chance to be at the forefront of the CCS revolution and take your next step towards a sustainable future.

The CCS4G Symposium is organised by the GESGB ‘Exploring The Energy Transition’ Special Interest Group.

Technical Convenors: Kevin Dale (Sasol Energy), Neil Frewin (Shell), Catherine Horseman-Wilson (Wood Mackenzie) and Clare Glover (ExxonMobil).
