Our speaker for May is Davide Gamboa, a graduate of the University of Lisbon with a long association with Wales, especially Cardiff where he gained his Ph.D.. As a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow for the Sêr Cymru National Research Network for Low Carbon Energy and the Environment he was part of the Geo-Carb-Cymru cluster, composed of researchers from BGS, Aberystwyth University and Cardiff University, studying the carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) potential in and around Wales.
On Thursday May 23rd Davide will be talking about Carbon Capture and Sequestration in the East Irish Sea. This area contains two formations with major storage potential: the Sherwood Sandstone Formation with closures in fault-bounded horsts, and the older Collyhurst Sandstone Formation. Stress modelling of the EISB fault network indicates limited leakage risks. The basin therefore has an increasing strategic value for CCS.
The talk will take place at the RCA in Conwy, starting at 18:30 with refreshments available from 18:00.
