CCUS Project Support

Providing Injection & Storage Timeline Security

CRA provides high-quality specialty alloy tubulars and expert technical guidance to support the unpredictable timelines and unique material requirements CCUS projects face.

Our unique Just-In-Time model utilizes trading and mill manufacturing to offer significantly reduced lead times for premium OCTG and tubulars. This approach enables our customers to fast-track their projects and provides crucial timeline security for injection and storage projects.

The Global Warehouse

Through CRA’s affiliate PipeSearch, we connect customers to a global supply of high-quality, unused pipe and tube (OCTG). This global warehouse utilizes robust data-driven solutions and rigorous quality verification processes to ensure our customers have access to premium OCTG on their timeline.

Just-In-Time US Mill Manufacturing

CRA Finished Tubes, a CRA affiliate, is a Just-In-Time US mill manufacturer with reserved capacity to accommodate urgent needs for corrosion-resistant alloy pipe in standard and non-standard specifications, lengths, and quantities. Our size capability ranges from 2-1/16” to 10-3/4” OD with wall thicknesses up to 1.925” for stainless, duplex, super duplex, and nickel-based alloys.

Expert Metallurgical Support

With extensive well design experience in both conventional oil and gas and CCUS projects, our expert metallurgical team is able to provide technical support throughout the well design and material selection process. In addition to our in-house expertise, CRA has partnered with 3rd party testing and engineering companies globally equipped to test the unique conditions of your CCUS well.

Frequently Asked Questions About CCUS

What is carbon capture and sequestration?

Carbon capture and sequestration (CCUS) is the process of capturing and safely storing atmospheric CO2 and carbon emissions produced through industrial processes.

Is the CO2 from Carbon sequestration injected in a gaseous or liquefied state?

CO2 has to enter the reservoir in a liquid supercritical state, however, there are cases where it is gas at the wellhead but becomes supercritical at the reservoir with pressure and temperature changes.

How long does a sequestration well last?

For Injectors, 20 years injection and 30 years monitoring. If the monitoring looks good, it allows for a faster P&A. For Monitor wells, it is 50 years, though local requirements vary. For example, California requires 100 years of monitoring.

What is the Carbon Capture and Sequestration Process?

Capturing and trapping the gas: It can be trapped after combustion , meaning it gets separated from other gases produced by burning fuel. It can also be captured before combustion, meaning it is removed from the fuel source before combustion occurs. A third method burns the fossil fuel in a power plant filled with pure oxygen.

Transporting the gas: Usually, the gas travels along pipelines above or below the ground or in the ocean. The pipelines might collect the gas from various sources along the way. At some point, the carbon dioxide may be transferred to a tanker before reaching its destination.

Storing the gas: One is to store it in reservoirs under the ground. When in underground storage, the carbon is held at a steady temperature and exists in a state somewhere between a liquid and a gas. Another possibility is to store carbon dioxide in the ocean. When stored deep beneath the ocean’s surface, the gas would be denser than water and would remain at the depths of the ocean for years.
