CCS Project Team Heads To Norway.

Energy Pipelines CRC project team members Valerie Linton, Robert Newton and Guillaume Michal recently travelled to Oslo to attend the CLIMIT 2017 summit and to hold a two day face to face meeting with project team members from Joint Industry Project partners DNV GL.

CLIMIT, the funding arm of Norwegian government agency Gassnova SF, conduct a two day summit every two years bringing researchers and industry together to discuss current developments involving carbon capture, transport and storage and to present updates on projects funded by CLIMIT. Our team were invited to attend this very informative summit by the CLIMIT representatives involved in our joint project with DNV GL.

The joint industry project between Energy Pipelines CRC and DNV GL is funded by the Australian Government through the Carbon Capture and Storage Research Development and Demonstration (CCS RDD) Fund and CLIMIT. The project, which commenced in July 2016, will involve two full scale fracture tests to be undertaken at the DNV GL test site at Spadeadam in the UK, to assist with the development of fracture and dispersion models, to provide input into the Australian and international Standards for designing pipelines to transport carbon dioxide, and to modify the DNV GL recommended practices relating to the design and construction of relevant pipelines. The project is due for completion by April 2019.

Designing the two tests is at an advanced stage, the first test is planned for late September 2017, and the second test is planned for February 2018.

Following the meeting in Oslo, Valerie and Robert visited the Spadeadam test facility near the Scottish border. The site visit and discussions with the test team gave us a greater insight on the test layout and complexities. We look forward to two very successful tests.

A highlight for us was the snow cover in Norway. Travelling from a very warm and humid Wollongong to the brisk cold of Norway was interesting.

We had one day of snow, as evidenced in the picture below the other days in Norway were bright sunshine, but still cold enough for others to use the lake by the DNV GL offices as a walking track.
