Among work published between January 2018 and December 2019, the article “Potential of storing gas with high CO2 content in salt cavern built in ultra-deep water in Brazil” received some of the most downloads in the 12 months following online...
Research on the storage of CO2 and CH4 in ultra-deep sea salt caverns is competing in the area of “Petroleum and Gas Exploration and Production”. Award ceremony to be held at the end of November The FAPESP Shell Research Centre...
One of the objectives is to develop catalysts for reactions that use CO2 as the raw material; the RCGI helped with the cost of the new facilities On July 12, in the city of São Paulo, the Laboratory for Research...
Their goal is to deliver an open and flexible numerical simulation software for solutions to inverse problems The subject of inverse problem solving is increasingly recurrent in academia. These are situations when scientists have measurements of something, but do not...
System with the potential to subsidize city management allows mapping of numerous urban phenomena; use must be public and free. Led by geographer Luís Antônio Bittar Venturi, a research team from the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI)...
With 16 research projects, the Carbon Abatement programme investigates innovative techniques for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, including CCS initiatives The new programme of the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI) has great potential for bringing about the transfer...
According to Kris Anderson, of the Sustainable Gas Institute (SGI), the average size of natural gas fields that are being discovered is becoming smaller, and that has an impact on the profits of investors During a recent lecture to Professors...
Scientists study the possibility of using reservoirs with adsorbing matrices for making use of the boil-offs occurring in LNG transported by vessels. Optimising the thermodynamic aspects of the adsorption processes and the emptying of reservoirs in which natural gas is...
In the Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI), scientists develop two innovative methods to physically separate carbon dioxide (CO2) from methane (CH4). The main component of natural gas is methane. The remainder is composed of other hydrocarbons – such as...
