Biomethane Acceptance in Underground Storage Facilities
Harmen Dekker (EBA CEO) will deliver a presentation on “Development of Biomethane in Europe”, based on current development and new targets for EU to be announced soon.
MARCOGAZ has recently prepared a report on the acceptance of biomethane in the underground storage facilities (UGS) with a particular focus on aquifers.
In the report, the conclusions drawn highlight the significance of oxygen existence in the biomethane due the gas treatment process of biogas. The increasing amount of biomethane injection into the storage facilities, alongside the accelerating energy transition and decarbonisation of the gas industry, may require handling of oxygen ingresses due to sensitivity of storage facilities, particularly aquifers. The report stresses that permissible oxygen content is dependent on the specific facility and must be assessed case by case. Furthermore, the technical methods to be removed from biomethane is also explored.
The energy transition continues to accelerate the decarbonisation efforts of the gas industry, including the role of the underground storage facilities and their potential to accommodate larger volumes of renewable gases.
Our vision is to launch and exchange stakeholder dialogue on the technical aspects of renewable gases injection in the underground storage facilities, and to further share technical insights related to the abovementioned report.
MARCOGAZ is therefore pleased to host its second Tech Forum on the topic of “Biomethane Acceptance in Underground Storage Facilities”. The webinar will be a good opportunity to bring together a group of experts in the field of biomethane generation, development and storage.
