Project: ACT on Offshore Monitoring

Acronym ACTOM (Reference Number: 299661)
Duration 01/09/2019 - 31/08/2022
Project Topic The primary objective of ACTOM is to develop internationally applicable capabilities for the design and execution of appropriate, rigorous and cost-effective monitoring of offshore carbon storage, aligning industrial, societal and regulative expectations with technological capabilities and limitations. Sub-objectives: Mission Innovation Storage Priority Research Directions PRDS-5 and PRDS-4 -A pre-operational web-based toolkit enabling the derivation of optimal monitoring strategies -Assess how to combine different monitoring technologies -Define tools for detecting anomalies in data streams Mission Innovation Storage Priority Research Directions PRDCC-3: -Assess how to consistently communicate capabilities, limitations, knowledge and uncertainties of monitoring -Apply a Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and a Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) framework to evaluate CCUS -To put offshore monitoring strategies in a practicable framework in line with current regulations and standards
Project Results
(after finalisation)
The outcome of ACTOM is expected to be a pre-operational web-based toolkit that enables: ? the derivation of optimal monitoring strategies tailored to individual offshore storage sites or regions. ? an operator to determine how to combine different monitoring technologies and design and update efficient monitoring programs based on assessed risks ? the evaluatation of metrics and automatic decision and recommendation tools for detecting anomalies in data streams. The impact of ACTOM will be: ? An ability for operators and regulators to consistently communicate capabilities, limitations, knowledge and uncertainties of monitoring to governments, stakeholders and the public at large. ? A Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and a marine spatial planning (MSP) and licensing framework to evaluate CCUS in a social, regulatory and political context ? Offshore monitoring strategies placed in a practicable framework in line with current regulations, standards and expectations.
