DNV KEMA launches CO2MPETENCY, a new project learning service for the CO2 management and CCS industries to accelerate world-wide competency building.
 

Building on the insights developed as a result of a broad portfolio of knowledge sharing and dissemination work, DNV KEMA is now launching a new knowledge management service for the CO2 management and CCS industries to accelerate worldwide competency building.


The new service supports:

 

  • Learning in CO2 management projects: developing and implementing lessons learning at key milestones and critical points on the project timeline.
  • Learning between CO2 management projects: enabling connections between projects and the identification, capture and sharing of good practices, joint problem solving and exchange of lessons learned between concurrent projects;
  • Learning from CO2 management projects: the targeted capture, validation and dissemination of project knowledge to inform a wider community of practice and future projects.


“Every day, in CO2 management and CCS projects around the world new experiences, lessons and solutions are developed. Some of this knowledge is documented and captured in systems; some of it is held by project staff, partners and contractors. Much of the knowledge is private and defines competitive advantage, but we believe that part of it will, when shared, benefit all of us,” says Michael Carpenter, principal consultant at DNV KEMA’s CCS Unit in Oslo, Norway.

According to Eelco Kruizinga, CO2MPETENCY project manager and principal consultant at DNV the new project learning service can help to “De-risk CCS by learning together how to manage the risks associated with capture, transport and storage of CO2 and to develop standards that define safe and economical industry practice; Accelerate technology development through sharing of what works and what doesn’t, the CO2 management and CCS industry can advance more quickly through technology readiness levels in existing and new areas; Build public confidence through dissemination of the evidence gathered about the feasibility and safety of alternative CO2 management strategies, including CCS.


He continues, “The new service will also build regulatory knowledge and address regulatory concerns whilst enabling regulators to learn from real industry knowledge and in turn, provide industry with opportunities to address concerns of regulators; Improve organisational efficiencies by facilitating mutual problem solving around organisational issues and plant operations; and safeguard our people by sharing good practice in HSE, we can raise the bar to protect our staff, our assets and the environment.”


“Experience happens by itself, but learning from it at an organisational level requires a facilitated and systematic approach in order to become a reality. DNV KEMA has a unique methodology and track record for doing this and is well-positioned to support the CO2 management and CCS industries,” adds Kaare Helle, business development manager at DNV KEMA’s CCS Unit in Oslo, Norway.


“We do this through various means such as benchmarking performance of CCS activities to enable sharing and learning, capturing expertise to safeguard against knowledge loss and developing topical communities of practice,” adds Helle.
