BREAKING NEWS: FABIG LUNCHTIME WEBINARS TO BE HELD EVERY 2 WEEKS WHILST MEASURES AGAINST COVID-19 PREVENT THE ORGANISATION OF OUR TRADITIONAL TECHNICAL MEETINGS

Register NOW for our next Lunchtime Webinar to be held on Wednesday 24th February 2021

WEBINAR DETAILS

We are pleased to confirm our next FABIG Lunchtime Webinar 'CCS CO2 - Aspects of CO2 that could cause or contribute to a major accident' presented by Hamish Holt from DNV GL on 24th February 2021 at 13.00 GMT.

For additional information and registration, please go to the Events section of the website.

Abstract:

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) requires very large quantities of impure CO2 to be captured, transported, and injected deep underground. The CO2 systems will likely have Major Accident Hazard (MAH) potential due to a combination of the mass of CO2 that could be released during an accidental leak and the impact if the released CO2 is inhaled above a concentration of around 5%.

Of particular concern are pipelines carrying liquid phase CO2 located onshore or near-shore as these pipelines will have a CO2 inventory of many tens of thousands of tonnes and if there was a loss of containment would threaten life for a considerable distance.

It is therefore vital that those responsible for implementing and regulating CCS are fully aware of the CO2's MAH potential so that CO2 systems are located, designed, operated and maintained to reduce the risks to people to an acceptably low level.

This presentation will raise awareness of the properties and behaviours of CCS CO2 and highlight how they could cause or contribute to a MAH event. It will draw on the considerable experience and knowledge gained through various CO2 joint industry projects (JIPs) that DNV GL have delivered to support the global roll out of CCS, such as CO2PIPETRANS and CO2RISKMAN.

The presentation will include information on:

  • CCS & CO2 basics;
  • Inhalation effects;
  • Integrity threats:
    • Material incompatibility;
    • Internal corrosion;
    • Low temperatures;
    • Solid CO2 formation;
    • Thermal expansion;
  • Mixture phase behaviour;
  • Propagating pipeline cracks;
  • Hydrate formation;
  • CO2 BLEVE;
  • Release modelling & topography effects;
  • MAH Regulatory oversight.
FABIG WEBINAR SERIES

We will be organising lunchtime webinars every two weeks whilst working life remains disrupted by measures to combat the COVID-19 epidemic. Such measures either prohibit or make inadvisable large meetings such as our Technical Meetings.

We are now looking for presentations covering topics relevant to the following themes:

  • Robust Principles for Safe Design against Fires & Explosions based on Experience;
  • Fire and Explosion Hazards from Low Carbon Energy Sources (we are also looking for presentations covering related incidents).

As such, please do not hesitate to contact us at fabig@steel-sci.com if you or one of your colleagues would like to give a relevant presentation.

Take care and stay safe,

The FABIG Team
