Online Talk: Carbon Capture and Storage

12 October 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- Free

Carbon Capture and Storage is one of an array of tools available to enable the decarbonisation of modern life, the task which has in recent years crystalised as the defining challenge of the current time. Bodies such as the IEA, CCC and IPCC underline the technology as a vital part of the solution space if progress is to be made at the pace needed to meet the Paris Agreement. This talk will give an understanding of the basics of the technology and address commonly asked questions associated with it. It will also give a short overview of projects within Shell currently being planned and those in operation.

Speaker bio: Mark is a Geoscientist with 12 years’ industry experience. Since joining Shell in 2009 he has been involved with field operations in Oman, and conventional hydrocarbon project maturation in the UK and Nigeria. He is a senior geologist and storage advisor in Shell’s CCS Capability and Assurance Team. Mark leads Shell’s CO2 storage contributions to the Northern Endurance Partnership project in the Southern North Sea. He also supports a number of CCS opportunities across the global portfolio. Here the key role is to equip teams so that they successfully overcome the unique challenges and opportunities associated with ramping up the role out of CCS at industrial scale. He has a undergraduate degree in Geology from the University of Aberdeen, and a Masters degree in Petroleum Geoscience from Imperial College London.
