Since the goal of CCUS is to reduce carbon emissions from industry operations, associated regulations are predicted to be extremely strict. Leakage from underground CO2 wells will be carefully monitored as a means of protecting personnel and limiting environmental damage.
To help industries meet these challenges, Vallourec experts are developing tubular solutions to help detect gas leaks in usually inaccessible areas.
“Unique among tube manufacturers, Vallourec is developing both the piping to inject CO2 into wells and the monitoring solutions to ensure the carbon remains underground. Our goal is to provide the necessary services and expertise to industries looking to lower their CO2 emissions and use clean energy.”
