The CO2PIPETRANS partners are:
- Arcelor Mittal
- E.on Ruhrgas
- Health and Safety Executive (HSE) UK
- Maersk Oil
- Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) Norway
- V&M Tubes
This would enhance the robustness of risk management of technical and safety risks related to the whole life cycle of pipeline transmission of CO2. The life cycle of CO2 pipeline transmission consists of following stages:
Scope of CO2PIPETRANS Phase 2
The scope of work includes the following areas where further R&D is being conducted to gain an improved understanding and /or data:
Dense Phase CO2 Release Modeling Validation Data
Objective is to make available suitable information and data from experimental work to assist development and validation of robust dense phase CO2 depressurization, release, and dispersion models. Data collected during two complimentary programmes of medium scale CO2 release experiments conducted by BP and by Shell is now available. Download data set 1 (BP data), data set 2 (Shell data), data set 3 (depressurisation tests on a CO2 pipeline) and data set 4 (experimental discharge data for large diameter CO2 releases).
Objective is to provide confirmation of theoretical models by performing full scale fracture arrest testing.
Objective is to determine the corrosion mechanism and the corrosion rate in dense phase CO2 for various amounts of impurities like O2, SOx, NOx and H2S.
