PESA ETSIG/CSIRO CCS Knowledge Transfer Series: Installment 2

Tuesday, 3 October, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (Australia/Perth time)

Free – $10.00

To view the event video and associated handouts (if any), please either log in to your active PESA membership account or enter the event password you received when you registered for this event.

Guest Speaker(s): Samuel Jackson (CSIRO)

Dr. Samuel Jackson is a senior research scientist at CSIRO Energy in Melbourne. He has a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Nottingham, UK, and was a postdoc at Imperial College London. He has 10 years of research experience in multiphase flow modelling and experiments, related to carbon and hydrogen underground storage. Samuel was recently a lead researcher for the CO2CRC’s Otway Stage 3 CCS project, developing novel pressure tomographic monitoring methods, and safely storing 15 kt of CO2.

Samuel was also part of the CSIRO team in the FluidFlower International Benchmark for CO2 storage, where CSIRO demonstrated world-leading simulation capabilities for CO2 storage. He has participated in several large EU projects on CO2 storage (MUSTANG, PANACEA, ACT-Elegancy, MESMERISE-CCS) and has direct experience translating basic science to industry.

PESA ETSIG/CSIRO CCS Knowledge Transfer Series: Installment 2

The PESA Energy Transition Special Interest Group (ETSIG), in conjunction with CSIRO, is running the “CCS Knowledge Transfer Series” which aims to cover geological and geophysical aspects of CCS, focusing on the differences from oil and gas operations.

CCS Knowledge Transfer Series: Installment 2

Thermophysics and Multiphase Flow in CCS – Samuel Jackson (CSIRO)


In the second talk of the CCS Knowledge Transfer Series, we will discuss the physics and thermodynamics of CO2 flow in relation to CCS. We will highlight key differences, in terms of phase behaviour, between CO2 and other fluids more typically encountered in oil and gas operations, and the implications these have on multiphase flow in the reservoir. The main flow mechanisms, as well as physical scaling laws incorporating capillarity, buoyancy and viscosity will be discussed and used to analyse the flow regimes typically encountered in the field. The talk will end with discussion on dissolution, residual, and mineral trapping mechanisms.
