Why is understanding choked flow crucial for CO2 capture, transport and storage?
If we are to design and operate CO2 capture, transport and storage (CCS) systems efficiently and safely, we need to know more about CO2’s choked flow – that is, its maximum flow rate through valves, holes or other restrictions. This has been the subject of a new paper: Experiments and modelling of choked flow of CO2 in orifices and nozzles.
A report on the European Solid Mechanics Conference 2022 in Galway – with a focus on fracture modelling
Anne-Sophie Sur is a PhD candidate in Task 7 of the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS). This summer, she attended the 11th European Conference on Solid Mechanics in Galway, Ireland. Afterwards, she wrote a travel letter about her experience at the conference and explaining her work to develop a model to predict fractures in pipelines transporting CO2.
Interview with Jannicke Bjerkås: Oslo to have the first full-scale CCS facility for waste incineration
At Arendalsuka, NCCS Centre Director Mona Mølnvik interviewed Hafslund Oslo Celsio’s CCS Director Jannicke Bjerkås about Celsio’s progress on building the first full-scale CCS facility for waste incineration.
The IODP Expedition 396 Experience: Drilling and Sampling the Mid-Norwegian Continental Margin
Last year, NCCS PhD candidate joined the International Ocean Discovery Programme’s Expedition 396 to recover basalts. Now, he’s starting to characterise these basalts at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI).
CCS: What is it and why do we need it?
Ever wondered why too much CO2 in the atmosphere is a bad thing, and what CCS can do about it? Ingrid Snustad, research scientist at SINTEF Energy Research and the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS), is here to explain.
What we need to understand about fiscal metering for trading CO2
To succeed in implementing CCS at the scale needed to combat climate change, there needs to be a deep understanding of the related regulatory framework and its implications for CCS oversight. Fiscal metering impacts the entirety of the CCS value chain, and is critical for building trust and ensuring successful CO2 transactions between different parties.
