Overview

Castor offshore platformGEoREST aims at developing a novel methodology to predict and mitigate induced seismicity. Fluid injection related to underground resources has become widespread, causing numerous cases of induced seismicity. If felt, induced seismicity has a negative effect on public perception and may jeopardise wellbore stability and infrastructure, which has led to the cancellation of several projects.

Disponible en YouTube el Webinar "Recurso geológico para alcanzar la neutralidad climática" por el Dr Vilarrasa

 

El pasado 27 de julio el Dr. Víctor Vilarrasa ofreció el Webinar "Recursos geológicos para alcanzar la neutralidad climática" que organizó el Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología de El Salvador. Y ya está disponible en la plataforma de YouTube.

 

Víctor Vilarrasa impartirá el webminar "Recursos geológicos para alcanzar la neutralidad climática" el próximo miércoles 27 de julio

 

El Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología El Salvador les invita al webinar "Recursos geológicos para alcanzar la neutralidad climática" que será impartido por el Dr. Víctor Vilarrasa desde España.

Entrevista a Víctor Vilarrasa al programa “El Nautilus” d'IB3 ràdio on s'explica el que va passar amb l'emmagatzematge subterrani de gas a la plataforma Castor

 

Víctor Vilarrasa va ser entrevistat al programa Nautilus d'IB3 Ràdio aquest dissabte 16 de juliol sota el tema on s'explica que un seguiment adequat de l'emmagatzematge subterrani de gas de Castor podria haver permès evitar els terratrèmols induïts, que es va emetre a partir de les 12:00pm.

Víctor Vilarrasa is member of the Thesis Committee in the reading of Yufei Wang who will defend his thesis next 11th July

 

The PhD student Yufei Wang will defend his thesis on 11th July 2022 at 11h in the ETSECCPB - UPC CAMPUS NORD. Víctor Vilarrasa is a Thesis Committee member.

Title: Numerical Modeling of Geological Carbon Sequestration: Enhanced Dissolution in Randomly Heterogeneous Media

The GEoREST team has a new publication in Nature Communications on the induced seismicity at the underground gas storage of Castor

 

This publication emphasizes the importance of accounting for all the relevant triggering mechanisms of induced seismicity and the need for a thorough monitoring system to support decision-making protocols to manage induced seismicity in geoenergy projects. All the details can be found here:

 

We are hiring an Ukrainian postdoctoral researcher, for a 2-year contract to work on the project "Seismic Hazard Assessment from historical and instrumental earthquaKE catalogs for low- and middle-income countries" (SHAKE)

 

Cooperation with Ukraine: We have funding from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) for a 2-year postdoc to work on the project "Seismic Hazard Assessment from historical and instrumental earthquaKE catalogs for low- and middle-income countries" (SHAKE).
