CCSM-T4: National Assessment of CO2 storage sites and CO2 for EOR

The CCOP Technical Secretariat (CCOP TS) in cooperation with the Global CCS Institute, Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), PETRAD and Malaysia partners - PETRONAS and Minerals and Geoscience Department (JMG) successfully conducted the CCS-M T4 in Penang, Malaysia on 27-30 May 2014. The objectives of T4 are to have a deeper understanding of the methodologies and criteria for the selection of technically accessible CO2 for enhancing oil/gas recovery (EOR). The agenda included hands-on exercises to assess and test the site selection criteria and estimation procedures led by resource persons from Australia (CSIRO and ANLECRD), Norway (NPD and PETRAD) and CCOP member countries, notably Korea (KIGAM), Japan (GSJ) and Malaysia (PETRONAS).

Presentations at this course, as well as other relevant documents can be downloaded from CCS-M webpage, particularly from this link, http://www.ccop.or.th/ccsm/details/CCS-M-T4--National-Assessment-of-CO2-Storage-Sites-and-CO2-for-EOR.


CCS-M Seminar 2 (S2): CCS and EOR, 18-20 March 2014, Hanoi, Vietnam

CCS-M S2 is the second Seminar conducted by the CCOP Technical Secretariat (TS) in cooperation with the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI), Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, PETRAD and Vietnamese Institutions – PetroVietnam (PVN), Vietnam Petroleum Institute (VPI) and Vietnam Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (VIGMR). The objectives are to enhance the knowledge of the member countries on methodologies in assessing geological storage of CO2, the storage capacity and CO2 for EOR technologies.

The Seminar is also one of the technical activities conducted in Hanoi to coincide with the visit of the Crown Prince of Norway and his family to Vietnam in March 2014. The resource persons were from Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, PETRAD, Tel-Tek AS (Norway), DNV GL, CSIRO and ANLECRD (Australia), Belgium, and Japan. A total of 67 participants from CCOP Member Countries (China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam) participated in S2. The total includes 53 local participants and 3 from the CCOP Technical Secretariat.


CCOP-GSJ/AIST-GA Groundwater Phase II Final Meeting

The Coordinating Committee for Geoscience Programmes in East and Southeast Asia (CCOP) organized the CCOP- GSJ/AIST-GA Groundwater Phase II Final Meeting on 18-20 March 2014 in Bandung, Indonesia, in collaboration with the Geological Survey of Japan (GSJ/AIST) and Geological Agency of Indonesia (GA). As a final meeting of the Phase II, this meeting aimed to update and finalize the working group of the progress of the project, as well as share the current developments of groundwater activities in CCOP member countries. 


CCS-M T3: Communicating CCS to the Public

CCS-M T3 is the third training course conducted by the CCOP Technical Secretariat (TS) on 18 February 2014, in Bandung, Indonesia. This was organized in cooperation with the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI), Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, PETRAD and Geological Agency Indonesia (GAI) under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.  Given the vital role CCS will play in addressing climate change it is important to communicate the benefits of the CCS technology to the public.  Public engagement and communication activities are keys to the success of individual CCS projects.  CCS-M T3 aims to

  • Learn from past experiences on CCS/CCUS projects,
  • Enhance the capacities of the CCOP member countries in the permitting process of projects, and communicating CCS technologies to the public.
