GEO:N project SUBI holds status seminar at Gesteinslabor

17.05.2019

The interdisciplinary academic-industry joint research project is concerned with the integrity and safety of underground gas storages. The participants met in May in Heiligenstadt to discuss the progress and future of the project.

SUBI is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and belongs to the GEO:N program “Geosciences for Sustainability“.

Underground gas storage safety and integrity is already nowadays a key issue for a guaranteed energy supply. It will gain even more significance with the growing importance of renewable energies and the need to store intermittent wind and solar power as hydrogen or methane (power to gas).

Scientists and industry representatives from the SUBI consortium met on 07 June at Gesteinslabor to discuss the so far achieved results. SUBI covers a wide range of research scales from lab experiments about material fatigue of typical storage rocks such as salt and sandstone to satellite based interferometric surveys of existing storage sites. All the gained data serve as base for geomechanical models of gas storages exposed to high frequency storage cycles.

Further information about SUBI can be found on the DGMK homepage.
