Free – $10.00

Guest Speaker(s): Charles Jenkins (CSIRO)

Charles Jenkins is an applied physicist with a PhD from the University of Cambridge and is with CSIRO. He previously worked in various instrument design roles, including seven years with Schlumberger.  From 2008, he was involved in the design and operation of demonstration CO2 storage projects at the Otway International Test Center, run by CO2CRC, where his principal responsibilities were initially in managing the monitoring and verification programme. He was the Science Lead for the latest CO2 injection experiment at the Otway site, “Stage 3”.  Charles is a Fellow of the UK Institute of Physics and until recently, was an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control.

PESA ETSIG/CSIRO CCS Knowledge Transfer Series: Installment 7

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 7

Monitoring and Verification – What’s Different About CCS? – Charles Jenkins (CSIRO)


Monitoring and verification is one of the most distinctive aspects of CCS, but it is also one where there can be confusion about the nature and purpose of the activity. Any technical project will have methods for “monitoring and verifying”, but this mindset can lead to the assumption that M&V is a technology problem. Monitoring methods, be they geophysical, geochemical, or environmental, are often at the forefront of discussion. In fact, this distracts attention from the need clearly to identify the purpose of M&V.  Best practice in CCS sees M&V as a component of risk management, with the challenge being to assess risk correctly and only then assign technologies for its management. This is particularly difficult in the area of environmental monitoring, where CCS will occur within dynamic and evolving systems where causal chains are notoriously difficult to pin down. In this talk I will explain how to approach M&V as a part of managing the risks of CCS projects, and suggest a definition of its scope.
