In order to allow quantification of the strength of local micro-seismic events recorded at the CCS pilot site in Ketzin in terms of local magnitude, earthquake data recorded by standardized seismometers were used. Earthquakes were selected that occurred in Poland and Czech Republic and that were detected both on the Ketzin array and on nearby...

A resource and performance assessment methodology has been developed to designate prospective high permeable clastic aquifers and to assess the amount of potential geothermal energy in the Netherlands. It builds from the wealth of deep subsurface data from oil and gas exploration and production which is publicly and digitally available. The...

CO2 was injected into a saline aquifer near the town of Ketzin in Germany from July 2008 to August 2013. To monitor CO2- migration close to the injection well, TNO installed a fixed 2D seismic array of 120 meters length in 2009, with 3- component (3- C) geophones at the surface, 4-component receivers at 50 meters depth and a central vertical...

Fluvio-deltaic stratigraphy develops under continuous morphodynamic interactions of allogenic and autogenic processes, but the role and relative contribution of these processes to the stratigraphic record are poorly understood. We analysed synthetic fluvio-deltaic deposits of several accommodation-to-supply cycles (sequences) with the aim to...

Many CCS research projects are confined to lab or pilot scale, others restrict themselves to one or two fields of interest such as capture or storage. The first Dutch national R&D programme on CCS (CATO) and its successor CATO2 have been organized as integrated, demand-driven research programmes with a clear focus on the support of pilot...

TNO has carried out a high resolution 3D seismic survey off-shore Rotterdam. The new deployment concept that was tested with this survey results in high-quality 3D images of the shallow subsurface at relatively low cost, particularly in comparison with conventional 3D seismic data acquisition. Initially, the pilot survey aims to demonstrate the...

Depleted gas fields are seen as promising options for geological storage of CO2. The advantage of hydrocarbon fields are that the characteristics, such as the storage capacity and the proven sealing capacity are known. This means that only limited uncertainty remains after a technical feasibility study. One important issue with depleted gas...

Upfront predictions of hydraulic fracturing and gas production of potential shale gas targets in Europe are important as often large potential resources are deduced without detailed knowledge on the potential for successful stimulation. Such predictions are challenging as they need to be based on limited available data, i.e. without well tests...

The Rotterdam Capture and Storage Demonstration Project (ROAD) is an integrated CCS project in the Netherlands that has recently completed the storage permitting process. Development of the monitoring and contingency plans is a key component of this process. Our paper discusses the development of the monitoring and contingency plans, The project...

CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS) has the potential to significantly reduce the carbon emission that follows from the use of fossil fuels in power production and industry. Integrated demo-scale projects are currently being developed to demonstrate the feasibility of CCS and the first such projects are expected to start operating in Europe...

The North Sea contains the larger part of the storage capacity in North West Europe. Countries around the North Sea currently focus their attention on developing that capacity for the CCS demonstration projects. It is generally assumed that a second wave of CCS projects will further develop storage in the North Sea. However, a major hurdle is...

There is a clear synergy possible in geothermal and hydrocarbon exploration if wells are targeted in a double play concept. In the Netherlands, clastic aquifers which have been explored extensively by the hydrocarbon industry and are now targeted for geothermal energy qualify well for a double play. Through a simple example we demonstrate...

Implementation of geological CO2 storage requires monitoring for potential leakage, with an essential part being establishment of baseline CO2 in soil gas. CO2 concentrations and weather parameters were monitored for ∼2 years at three locations in the Netherlands. CO2 concentrations in soil ranged from 0.1 to 28% and were variable with site,...

TNO has developed a software tool that supports the design of a risk-based monitoring plan for a CO2 storage site. The purpose of the tool is to aid storage site operators by facilitating a structured monitoring technologies selection or evaluation process. The tool makes a selection this recommended monitoring technologies, based on a set of...

The IMPACTS project has a stated broad objective to develop the knowledge base of CO2 quality required for establishing norms and regulations to ensure safe and reliable design, construction and operation of CO2 pipelines and injection equipment, and safe long-term geological storage of CO2. More specifically for this paper, the project sets out...

We constructed a coupled model to obtain a better understanding of the role of pore pressure changes in causing fracture reactivation and seismicity during enhanced geothermal systems operation (EGS). We implemented constitutive models for fractures in a continuum approach, which is advantageous because of the ease of integration in existing...

We investigated the impact of the exploitation of a geothermal well doublet on surface movement. We found that the largest effect should be expected from the progressive cooling of the reservoir, through the thermo-elastic coupling. The absolute value of the expected subsidence is low, but possibly measureable if circumstances are favourite. In...
