The CTSCo Management Team has been involved in this demonstration project since the pre-feasibility phase. They continue to lead key components of the project into the feasibility/Front End Engineering Design (FEED) stage. This includes the areas of storage, source FEED and permitting, stakeholder and community engagement, and scheduling and budgeting.
The Management team has extensive resource and/or energy experience with expertise in the carbon capture storage industry. Key technical members of the team have deep sub-surface technical expertise, derived from many years experience working in the conventional oil and gas industry in the Surat Basin.
For the current stage, the Project Management Team is supported by specialists in the areas of seismic geophysics, geological resource modelling, hydrogeology, geochemistry, geomechanics, and reservoir flow modelling.
Specialist researchers including scientists and leading technical experts have also been engaged to undertake specific scientific studies and programs in the areas of geology, geophysics, storage and water. Leading institutions involved include University of Newcastle, University of Queensland, University of Melbourne, Australian National University, University of Texas, Simon Fraser University (Calgary), CSIRO and Institute of Mine Seismology Pty Ltd.
