1 © NERC All rights reserved Task 4: Review of efficacy of current and planned offshore monitoring plans with respect to regulatory requirements. Jonathan Pearce, BGS Doug Connelly, NOC (20 mins)

2 © NERC All rights reserved Task 4: Review of efficacy of current and planned offshore monitoring plans with respect to regulatory requirements: (BGS, NOC, mid-June to mid-August) Review regulations, including emissions trading: UK/EU and other eg Japan, Australia. BGS Produce list of key monitoring requirements BGS Assess ability of monitoring plans from Sleipner, Snovit, K12-B, Goldeneye and ROAD to meet global regulatory and emissions trading requirements. BGS/NOC Audit vs IEAGHG monitoring selection webtool BGS

5 © NERC All rights reserved Monitoring objectives Risk-based The Directive recognises that monitoring is essential to assess whether: Injected CO 2 is behaving as expected. Any migration or leakage occurs. Any identified leakage is damaging the environment or human health.

6 © NERC All rights reserved Storage Directive: Article 13 Comparison between the actual and modelled behaviour of CO 2 and formation water, in the storage site. Detecting significant irregularities. Detecting migration of CO 2. Detecting leakage of CO 2. Detecting significant adverse effects for the surrounding environment, including in particular on drinking water, for human populations, or for users of the surrounding biosphere. Assessing the effectiveness of any corrective measures taken… [in case of leakage]. Updating the assessment of the safety and integrity of the storage complex in the short and long term, including the assessment of whether the stored CO 2 will be completely and permanently contained.

11 © NERC All rights reserved Project ROAD permit application Injection start date: 2015 (latest Jan 2018) Permit for: depleted gas reservoir area P18-4 CO 2 source: EOn coal plant, Maasvlakte area Duration: maximum 8 years Rate: maximum 1.5Mt /year (47.57 kg CO 2 /second) Amount: Maximum 8.1 Mt CO 2 Maximum pressure: bar (pre-production initial pressure). Note, intended pressure = 320bar

12 © NERC All rights reserved ROAD Plans versus reg requirements Draft permit submitted 16 Dec Changed following EC opinion regarding updates to studies of pressure barrier between P18-4 and P15-9. Permit given 19 July Risk management plan, monitoring plan, provision closure and corrective measures plans submitted and present “no gaps”, but “must be detailed further”. Monitoring plan updated at least 6 months before injection starts and this plan must be approved by the Minister. Monitoring plan will also be updated no later than 4 years and 9 months after injection starts, and every 5 years after. The interdependence between the updated plans and reports must be described to the Dutch State Supervision of the Mines.

13 © NERC All rights reserved ROAD Monitoring plan development To fit with Storage Directive – risk based Well leakage prime focus to date Local pressure build up due to low injectivity in P18-6 Minor risk of fault leakage as pressures increase towards end of project. Two aims: to ensure the safety and the integrity of the storage complex and provide the necessary information to allow transfer of responsibility. to monitor the effectiveness of the corrective measures plan.

14 © NERC All rights reserved Monitoring categories Mandatory: based on the storage directive. Required: evidence for containment and to demonstrate integrity of seal, fault and wells. Optional contingency: will only be installed if irregularities show up. Quantification of leakage to the seabed is considered part of the contingency monitoring for ETS purposes and is only needed when there is an indication of leakage.

15 © NERC All rights reserved Monitoring phases Pre-injection – baseline monitoring Injection (Operational phase). Post-injection monitoring (reservoir is still accessible) – monitoring continues until a stable end situation can be determined. Post-injection (post well plugging) – If the plug is shown to be of acceptable quality the well will be sealed. Post-injection (post well abandonment) – if the seal is shown to be of acceptable quality the wells will be permanently abandoned. Post-injection (post-transfer) – After a demonstrably stable situation is shown, the reservoir will be transferred to the competent authority, which will be responsible for monitoring for 30 years from the moment of transfer. Long-term – As CO 2 is expected to remain in the reservoir, ROAD imply that its location will still need to be known for future underground activities.
