CO2 Transport and Storage

We at Kerone, dedicated to manufacture and install the pressing issue of Carbon dioxide (CO2) emission by providing an innovative solution for safe and efficient CO2 Transport and Storage. With a team of experts and commitment to sustainability we at Kerone offer a range of solutions that help business to reduce the carbon footprint and contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.

CCS emits as much CO2 as it captures, thereby netting approximately 72 to 90% emission reduction even though it can capture up to 85-95% carbon dioxide at the cost of energy consumed to separate it hence the net downstream emissions.

After capturing CO2 from any process, it needs to be transported to an appropriate repository. CO2 can be most efficiently transported at pressures that are higher than 7.4MPa and approximately 31˚C temperatures. Under these conditions, the CO2 acts as a liquid with gas-like properties. CO2 is ordinarily carried out using high-pressure piping systems constructed from carbon steels. Such equipment is similar to that used for carrying transportation of natural gases and ships. Large scale CO2 pipelines predominantly in sparsely populated EOR environment already exist and have been used for quite some time. Technical problems with CO2 ships may be expected, since they were only not implemented but not tried.

Appropriate areas for CO2 deposits could be old oil and gas fields, and deep saline formations below 800 m, where the environment is hot and pressurized at ambient levels that would keep the greenhouse gas in either its condensate phase or at super Physical and geo-physical trapping systems ensure that the CO2 does not migrate from its reservoir. These technologies resemble those employed in the injection of the CO2 into the reservoirs for the oil and gases industry. The storage site must have measurement and monitoring equipment’s used in observing the amount of storage space available as it decreases after well drilling and injection of the CO2. The development of special CO2 storage improvement for injection technologies is not common knowledge. Upon completion of the injection phase, plugging of the well with a proper ‘plug’ at adequate depth will have to take place in order to avoid reappearance of CO2 into higher zones, escape or contacting the ground water.

Environmental impact of CO2 Transport and Storage

Despite being required in averting global warming, carbon dioxide transport and storage does have some degree of environmental implications and entails various risks. For many products that rely on pipelines of transportation and tanks for storage, one big area of contention is the likelihood of leaks occurring here. Carbon dioxide has harmful effects on human life as well as the environment; hence, if it escaped from the storage location it would be detrimental. Specifically, carbon dioxide acts like greenhouse gas, displacing oxygen in confine space and causing suffocation. Therefore, careful design, monitoring, and regulation is required in order to reduce these risks.

Moreover, transporting CO2 uses more energy thereby creating another environmental implication, specifically the one resulting from the use of carbon-based infrastructure. Habitat destruction and land use changes can occur due to the building of pipelines or tanker systems. Therefore, alternative efficient transport means must be taken into consideration together with comprehensive studies on environmental impact assessment.

Geostorage of CO2 also comes with its own sets of geological and ground water risks. This involves the possibility of triggered seismicity, leaking into ground water resources, as well as unique localized geological issues. Addressing these risks requires proper site selection, extensive monitoring, and strict regulatory enforcement.

Therefore, proper management of long term stability of such sites is a key requirement that should be observed since any unexpected leaks may lead to high catastrophic accidents. Despite this, continuous monitoring and upkeep of the storage areas will be crucial over years or millennia in order to keep carbon dioxide efficiently stored.

Although CO2transportation and storage are important instruments for addressing climate change, their successful application necessitates thorough safety provisions and environmental assessment to reduce risk and guarantee sustainability of reduced carbon emissions.
