After leaving Illinois, the SECURe team headed to Canada on the next leg of their fact-finding mission. Edward Hough (British Geological Survey) and Michael Kupoluyi (Risktec) describe a day of learning and insight at Banff National Park, Alberta.
Edward Hough of British Geological Survey, SECURe project coordinator, describes highlights from the SECURe group’s visit to the US and Canada and thanks the host projects and agencies for sharing their knowledge and experience.
A group of senior scientists from the EU-funded SECURe project has kickstarted a fact-finding trip to North America with a visit to the US’s national centre for innovation in energy technologies. The 10-day visit to the US and Canada by the project partners is aimed at gathering examples of best practice in geoenergy projects, such as geological CO2 storage and shale gas extraction.
In September 2019, a group of senior scientists from the SECURe project took to the road in the US and Canada to visit examples of good practice in CO2 storage and unconventional hydrocarbons projects. Jonathan Pearce, WP6 leader on the SECURe project, explains the purpose of the visit and how the group’s findings will support Europe’s long-term ambitions.
