Project: Synergetic Utilisation of CO2 storage Coupled with geothermal Energy Deployment

Acronym SUCCEED (Reference Number: 299670)
Duration 01/09/2019 - 31/08/2022
Project Topic Research and demonstrate the feasibility of utilising produced CO2 for re-injection in a geothermal field to -maintain and enhance reservoir pressure as the driving mechanism for the geothermal fluid and improve geothermal performance, while also storing the CO2 that is currently vented to the atmosphere in most geothermal fields, -test and demonstrate new monitoring technologies, such as the new environmentally friendly seismic monitoring EM-vibrators and highly sensitive distributed fibre-optic acoustic sensing systems (DAS), besides the more conventional pressure, temperature, geochemical and tracer monitoring, -increase reservoir permeability and productivity while suppressing scaling by artificial acidification, -provide a real field environment for the testing of supercritical CO2 injection into a carbonate reservoir and, at the same time, -provide the geothermal energy sector with the means to address the current climate change challenge through CO2 utilisation and storage.
Project Results
(after finalisation)
Strategies for pressure management in geothermal reservoirs through CO2 injection and storage to extend the operational life of wells/fields with commercial benefits -Field testing of a novel vibratory-type seismic sources & a new higher signal/noise iDAS system to provide layer-specific seismic monitoring capability -Understanding of fundamentals of field scale behaviour of injected CO2 in geothermal reservoirs and critical assessment of the theories developed at laboratory scale so far - Insights into the potential for injection induced seismicity in geothermal fields through monitoring and evaluation of data from a local seismic network - assessment of the effectiveness, and validation of a number of CO2 injection and plume monitoring in carbonate reservoirs -Development of technoeconomic assessment methods for geothermal/CCUS -Development of flexible and modular life cycle inventory model -Development and demonstration of an innovative CCUS technology to accelerate CCS
