Seminar on LNG Strategy, Policy, Technology and Systems with particular emphasis on the role of LNG for a reduced carbon footprint

The LNG Seminar was conducted in Beijing, China on 11-13 June 2014.  This event was organized by the CCOP Technical Secretariat (TS) and PETRAD in cooperation with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs thru the Royal Norwegian Embassy (RNE) – Beijing, China’s Ministry of Land and Resources (MLR) and SINOPEC PEPRIS.  Dr. Adichat Surinkum of the CCOP TS and Mr Liang M SINOPEC, Mr. Z of Ministry of Land and delivered the welcoming addresses.  Dr Oystein Berg of PETRAD, former Managing Director of PETRAD, delivered the opening address and officially opened the Seminar.  The keynote addresses were delivered by Dr. Li of SINOPEC and Prof Terje Halmo of Terica AS, Norway providing an  overview of the importance of Gas/LNG as fuel switching  option to reduce the carbon footprint and these keynotes set the tone of LNG Seminar.

The objective of the Seminar is to enhance the knowledge of the participants on the various aspects of LNG, including: construction, the latest developments in LNG transportation, design options and trends for floating LNG and terminals, and regasification.  A total of 70 participants attended the Seminar with about ~65 % involved in LNG operations.


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.


CCOP–GSJ/AIST–MGI DelSEA-II Workshop on Coastal Geology and Hazards

The Coordinating Committee for Geoscience Programmes in East and Southeast Asia (CCOP), in collaboration with Geological Survey of Japan (GSJ/AIST) and the Marine Geological Institute of Indonesia (MGI), has organized the CCOP–GSJ/AIST–MGI DelSEA-II Workshop on Coastal Geology and Hazards on 16 – 22 March 2014 in Bandung, Indonesia. This workshop was the final meeting of Phase II of the project “Integrated Geological Assessment for Deltas in Southeast and East Asia” (DelSEA project phase II), which is financially and technically supported by the Geological Survey of Japan (GSJ/AIST).
