Gas Storage

With Dutch gas reserves decreasing, depleted gas fields are considered to be used as underground gas storage sites with the aim to give the Netherlands a strong position in the European gas trade community, acting as a gas “roundabout”. Not all depleted gas or oil fields are automatically suitable for gas storage. Critical technical aspects, such as the long term storage capacity, seal integrity, injectivity and deliverability require a thorough evaluation. PanTerra has the capability to assist with this critical step.

How we can help

Our laboratory is well equipped to determine the seal capacity of the overlying cap rock. Entry pressure measurements can be performed and our Ultra Low Permeameter, built together with Utrecht University, is capable of measuring as low as 0.1 nano Darcy to test the permeability of sealing rock. Together with our team consisting of reservoir geologists and geochemists we are capable of characterizing the mineralogy and texture of your target storage site and evaluate the potential reactions with the to-be-stored gas.

PanTerra can combine and analyse all this data and provide you with a technical risk analysis, which can be extended to a risk register workshop with your team.

PanTerra is a member of CATO, the Dutch national R&D program for CO2 capture, transport and storage.
