Panelists of the recent World Oil Webcast "CCUS: Best Practices for Well Construction and Design" answer questions covering the unique technical and regulatory challenges surrounding CCUS well design as these projects continue to gain momentum in the energy industry.
In the selection of materials for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), there is a tendency to rely upon existing knowledge and experience from oil & gas production. However, CCS presents a unique set of conditions and challenges in identifying suitable and cost-effective materials.
Historically, acid gas injection well completions have typically consisted of low alloy steels internally plastic coated or fiberglass lined. However, costly workovers and environmental have caused operators and engineering companies to reevaluate these well completions. CRA often supports engineering companies in these evaluations, helping determine the ideal metallurgy based on the operator's goals and expectations. […]
Reducing environmental impact is now an essential part of the future strategy for major energy companies worldwide. Increased resources and investment are being injected into the energy transition as companies turn to more renewable forms of energy. However, it's widely acknowledged this energy transition will take time. With the world still very much reliant on conventional […]
