IEAGHG reports in 2022
A number of IEAGHG reports were completed in 2022, two regarding carbon storage and two regarding carbon capture. You can read more about them below.
2022-01 Criteria for Depleted Reservoirs to be Developed for CO2 Storage
This study will provide insight into both technical and economic opportunities for what depleted reservoirs could mean for carbon storage in the future. The long-term, secure storage of carbon depends into well characterised geological reservoirs, such as saline aquifers or depleted oil and gas fields (DO&GF). The potential storage capacity of saline formations is well understood, and the aim of this IEAGHG study was to focus specifically on a set of storage conditions that apply to depleted hydrocarbon fields.

2022-02 Current State of Knowledge Regarding the Risk of Induced Seismicity at CO2 Storage Projects
This study reviewed the risk induced seismicity at CO2 storage sites. The phenomenon has multiple causes including waste water disposal, geothermal energy and mining. Natural seismicity is also a widespread occurrence and can detected in the same regions as industrial activities associated with induced seismicity. Consequently the detection of any seismicity has to be clearly distinguished.
2022-03 Prime Solvent candidates for next generation of post-combustion CO2 capture plants
The aim of this study is to review potential solvents and process designs to accelerate the deployment of carbon capture technologies. Considering the extensive research of solvents and development, a rapid and reliable screening protocol is crucial for improving processes.
2022-04 From CO2 to Building Materials – Improving Process Efficiency
This study has investigated how carbon can be used in building materials such as cement and concrete. Capture processes were investigated and case studies where the processes were used are included.
