Integrated CO2 transportation and injection

April 19, 2023
CO2 transportation and injection systems are the critical conduits that move captured CO2 from their sources to permanent underground storage locations. These systems will vary in size and complexity, but most will include some form of CO2 analysis, treatment, compression, and monitoring. During injection operations, fluctuations in upstream capture composition and volume will happen in parallel with downstream changes to store behavior. To actively manage this end-to-end variability, the transportation and injection system needs an integrated, automated control system that links upstream process control equipment with downhole instrumentation. In this webinar, TechnipFMC and Halliburton will provide an overview of their integrated CO2 transportation and injection solutions and explain how client value can be created through system integration.

Steel Material Performance for Hydrogen Transport and Storage
