  • 1.  Facility design at CO2 Injection Well Sites

    Posted 08-28-2023 05:58 PM


    Can anyone suggest some good references for facility design specifically related to CO2 injection well sites. I am looking for guidance on the facility design up to the wellhead (i.e. piping, connections, compressors, sampling information, in line data, etc.)
    Thank you.

    Hi Valerie,

    you may want to look at all the Shell Quest documents on the AB Govt website. The knowledge sharing agreement they have requires them to post that type of information.

    Hi Valerie Wilson, 

    Designing facilities for CO2 injection well sites require knowledge in many areas, including process engineering, reservoir engineering, pipeline design, and more. Here are some recommended references and resources for facility design specifically related to CO2 injection well sites:

    1. Textbooks and Technical Books:

      • "Carbon Capture and Storage: Technologies, Policies, Economics, and Implementation Strategies" by M.M. Maroto-Valer. While it broadly covers the CCS process, there are sections that go into the specifics of transportation and injection.
      • "Carbon Dioxide Capture for Storage in Deep Geologic Formations" by David C. Thomas and Simon A. Benson. This multi-volume set, especially Volumes 2 and 3, offers detailed information about the geological aspects and the transport, injection, and monitoring processes.
    2. Standards and Guidelines:

      • ISO 27914:2017 "Carbon dioxide capture, transportation and geological storage – Geological storage". This provides guidelines specifically for CO2 geological storage.
      • API Recommended Practice 1110 "Recommended Practice for the Pressure Testing of Steel Pipelines for the Transportation of Gas, Petroleum Gas, Hazardous Liquids, Highly Volatile Liquids or Carbon Dioxide". This practice covers the pressure testing of pipelines used for the transportation of gas, petroleum gas, hazardous liquids, highly volatile liquids, or carbon dioxide.
    3. Research Papers and Journals:

      • "Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in Industry Clusters" by Psarras et al. It presents concepts on transportation and storage infrastructures.
      • Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering: This journal often contains articles related to CO2-EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery) which touch upon injection facility designs.
      • International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control: This journal is a repository of research articles and studies about greenhouse gas control technologies including CO2 capture, transportation, and storage.
    4. Industry Reports and White Papers:

      • "Best Practices for Validating CO2 Geological Storage: Observations and Guidance from the IEAGHG Weyburn-Midale CO2 Monitoring and Storage Project" by the International Energy Agency. This provides a detailed case study and offers practical guidance.
      • Reports by Carbon Capture & Storage Association (CCSA) often provide insights and recommendations for facility design and infrastructure.
    5. Workshops and Courses:

      • The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) regularly offers workshops, online training, and symposia on topics related to CO2 injection and EOR.
      • Petroleum Extension (PETEX), affiliated with The University of Texas at Austin, offers training materials on a wide range of oil and gas topics, including EOR and CO2 injection.
    6. Websites:

      • NETL's Carbon Storage Database (by National Energy Technology Laboratory) offers information on several CCS projects, including specific injection well projects. It's a great way to get real-world data on current and past projects.
      • The Global CCS Institute maintains an extensive library of resources and project databases on CCS technologies, including facility designs for CO2 injection sites.

    While these references will provide a solid foundation, remember that facility design often requires tailoring to specific project requirements, geographical conditions, and regulatory considerations. Always consider partnering with experts or consulting firms with specific experience in CO2 injection facility design for comprehensive guidance.

    I hope this helps.
