PESA SA/NT February Evening Talk: The pathway to Gigatonne CO2 storage

Thursday, 8 February @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm (Australia/Adelaide time)

Free – $40.00

Guest Speaker(s): Phil Ringrose

Philip S. Ringrose is a Specialist in reservoir geoscience at Equinor and Adjunct Professor in CO2 Storage at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He has been engaged with many CCS project developments over the last 15 years and has published widely on reservoir geoscience and fluid flow in rock media, including the textbooks Reservoir Model Design and How to Store CO2 underground.

Ringrose holds a BSc in geology from the University of Edinburgh and a PhD in applied geology from University of Strathclyde in Scotland.  He is a member of SEG, EAGE, and the Geological Society (London), and was the 2014-2015 President of the EAGE. In 2018 he was appointed as Honorary Professor at the University of Edinburgh and in 2020 he was elected as a member of The Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters (DKNVS).

The large-scale capture and storage of carbon dioxide is a critical component of the route to achieving Net Zero. However, CCUS technologies are still in their infancy. The IEA calculated worldwide storage-rates in 2021 of approximately 40 Mt of CO2 per year but this needs to be upscaled to 7.6Gt of CO2 per year by 2050. Phil will review the pathway to gigatonne-scale CO2 storage and present details from a case study on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
