Carbon Capture and Storage - The Role of Depleted Gas Fields in UK Deployment
By Graeme Davies, Harbour Energy Project Director
Organised by SPE Vietnam Section
Carbon Capture and Storage is one of multiple technology pathways that will be required in order to reach the scale of carbon emission reduction on the route to Net Zero by 2050. In the UK, Harbour Energy is working to support the deployment of CCS at-scale, aligned to the UK government’s target of up to 30 million tons per year of capture and storage by 2030. The strong knowledge, skills base and future available infrastructure from the North Sea’s upstream Oil and Gas presents a unique opportunity to underpin early CCS deployment.
This presentation shall introduce a number of technical risk factors that require to be managed to support safe and effective CCS deployment, using Harbour Energy’s V Net Zero CO2 Transportation and Storage project as a case study.
Graeme Davies is the Project Director of Harbour Energy’s V Net Zero Transportation and Storage project, to provide high-capacity transportation of captured CO2 to well-defined depleted gas storage reservoirs in the Southern North Sea.
Graeme is a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and has previously held leadership roles in Operations, Asset Management and Development delivery in the Upstream Oil and Gas industry.
Graeme holds a Master of Science degree from NTNU, Trondheim, Norway, and an Honours degree in Mechanical and Offshore Engineering from Heriot Watt University.
