Advanced Carbon Management Solutions

ACCELERATING YOUR PATH TO NET ZERO

The transition towards renewable energy sources is leading to significant changes in revenue streams and business models. Traditional fluid testing technologies, initially designed for the oil and gas sector, often fail to meet the stringent requirements of Cleantech applications like Carbon Management. With the Cleantech market for Net Zero rapidly expanding, operators increasingly need quick and accurate data to minimise project risks and make informed investment decisions.

The unique thermodynamic properties of CO2 and phase behaviour compared to natural gas present new challenges during operational events such as start-up, shutdown, depressurisation, fluctuating CO2 supply, and potential leaks. Moreover, impurities will be present in CO2 at various stages, from capture to storage. fluidXlab revolutionises the characterisation of CO2 with new technology that requires less fluid volumes than traditional methods, reducing time-to-field deployment and project risk.

Co2 Geological Storage

Co2 Capture & Transport

Enable Efficient and Safe Operations

In carbon management, capturing CO2 before its emission and transporting it via pipelines are crucial for optimising this complex process, necessitating thorough studies and analysis. Phase behaviour studies support pipeline design and predict potential issues like hydrate formation, ensuring safe and efficient transport. Corrosion studies guide material selection to prevent leaks and ensure pipeline integrity, safeguarding the environment. Flow assurance analysis guarantees smooth, reliable CO2 flow by mitigating challenges like pressure drops and wax deposition and fluid properties analysis, which is crucial at every stage of CO2 transport.
