Examples of our CCUS experience

We have worked with the premier US CCS company since 2019, making major contributions to two Class VI Wells permit applications to the US EPA.

Amongst other projects, Carbon Fluids has:

  • developed a risk-based approach to a CCUS opportunity in SE Asia, to inject CO2 into a depleted gas reservoir – a multi-MMT CO2 project;
  • worked with a major oil company over many years to model and analyse the performance of an operating CCS project at In Salah in Algeria, including geo-mechanical and thermal effects;
  • for separate UK Continental Shelf CCS projects, (1) conducted a sensitivity and risk analysis of injectivity, with geo-mechanical and thermal coupling, and (2) co-ordinated the development and use of the sub-surface model;
  • worked on a multi-year CCS opportunity on the NW Shelf of Australia with injection into an open saline aquifer.
