The annual US-Norway bilateral CCUS meeting 2019 will take place 29 – 30 August 2019 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, following the annual conference of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL)

 The bilateral meeting will start after lunch Thursday 29 August with break-out sessions. The themes for the break-out sessions have the working titles:

Capture: "Technologies for industrial applications of CCS"  

-       Capture technologies for industry: difference and similarities to capture for power

-       Emerging and enabling technologies

-       Testing, assessment criteria and qualification of technologies for industry.

-       Scaling up for industry, incl. modularization.

 Storage: ” Identifying R&D for offshore storage (EOR/saline) that would have the greatest impact and benefit in the short term”

-       Characterization - new methods for cost-effective site selection decisions 

-       Monitoring Verification and Accounting - making it smarted and more cost-effective

-       Wellbore construction, materials, integrity - smart wells, re-use of old wells, P&A technologies 

-       Simulation and modelling - better quantification and forecasting of CO2 in the subsurface

The plenary session will take place Friday 30 August with the working title

”Innovation through international cooperation"

and preliminary themes including 

-       ACT call and outcome of the common call between 10 European countries and USA

-       US-Norway collaboration contracts

26-29 August 2019

The bilateral meeting will follow the annual conferences of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) that takes place at the same convention centre 26-29 August 2019 and titled

”Addressing the Nation’s Energy Needs Through Technology Innovation – 2019 Carbon Capture, Utilization, Storage, and Oil and Gas Technologies Integrated Review Meeting”

Agendas for these meetings will be available in May. 

The overall schedule for the week 26-30 August in Pittsburgh is shown here. We encourage both US and Norwegian scientists to save the dates for what will be an interesting and rewarding week.
