Otway facility attracts international visitors
On Thursday 21 November 36 people took the opportunity to take a tour of our Otway National Research Facility following the CCUS Symposium. The visitors came from around the globe including the USA, Japan, Germany, UK and Timor Leste.
The geophysicists in the group were interested to hear representatives from Curtin University explain the A method of exploring the underlying strata of the earth, in which shocks are created, the resulting vibrations providing geological information monitoring research undertaken at site.
CO2CRC’s KS Chan proudly showed visitors the site’s four new monitoring wells and explained how they’ll be used in work to reduce the cost and impact of long-term monitoring of CO2.
“It was great to see first hand the farm activities going on without issue including the happy, healthy cows, totally oblivious to the things happening around and below them. A great showcase of how safe and minimally intrusive a CO2 storage and monitoring site actually is!” said one visitor.
