FORMULATION OF THE INTEGRATED PLAN FOR FLOOD CONTROL AND MASS MOVEMENTS OF THE CASMA RIVER BASIN – DEPARTMENT OF ANCASH. PERU.

Development of a Comprehensive Plan for Flood Control and Mass Movements to achieve the desired levels of protection and safety by reducing the risk of disasters caused by floods and mass movements.

Among other studies, geological and geomorphological studies, vulnerability analysis, flood or mass movement risk studies and geotechnical research campaign were carried out.

The river basin of the Casma River is in the northern part of the Pacific hydrographic region. Politically, it belongs to, 25 districts, 6 provinces of the Department of Ancash. The Casma river basin has an area of 2,973.97 km2

STUDY AND HYDROGEOLOGICAL FOLLOW-UP OF THE SUB SECTION: ARANJUEZ – ONTÍGOLA, OF THE HIGH-SPEED LINE EAST. SPAIN

Study and hydrogeological monitoring in the surroundings of the El Regajal tunnel of the East High Speed Line, which serves as a basis to document all the studies and hydrogeological data carried out during the project and construction phase, and thus, to identify the hydrogeological operation of the route environment after 5 years of commissioning the Line.

CAES PROJECT PHASE II – SELECTION OF GEOLOGICAL FORMATION/STRUCTURES SUITABLE FOR COMPRESSED AIR STORAGE FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF CAES TECHNOLOGY. SPAIN.

The aim of the work is the selection of the most appropriate geological structures in Spain for underground compressed air energy storage (CAES technology). The study is based on a previous shortlist study, carried out by INYPSA (Phase I) and intends the identification and detailed characterization of several favorable structures for CAES. For this selection is client specific design criteria is considered as well as its preferred location areas

HYDROGEOLOGICAL STUDY MARGARITA FIELD. BOLIVIA.

The Campo Margarita hydrocarbon exploitation was discovered by drilling the MGR-X1 exploratory well, a discovery confirmed by the drilling of the MGR-X2, MGR-X3 and MGR-4 wells.

The Campo Margarita is believed to be in an area with low rainfall in which, despite this, there has never been any problematic episode in the supply, even at times of maximum consumption.

There is not enough knowledge of the water bodies in the area, nor is literature identified in this regard, which is why it is considered important to conduct a hydrogeological study of the area that is of special interest in this asset, as it is an area of ​​scarcity. This analysis is key to know if the aquifer, the ecosystem is affected and to know if there could be supply problems in the future. From the drilled wells, it is known that the depth of the aquifer (s) in Margarita is greater than 100 meters.

ADVICE ON CAPTURE AND STORAGE OF CO2 IN BULGARIA.

 

CO2 capture and storage technologies are the medium-term solution to reduce emissions of greenhouse effect gases into the atmosphere.

In this context, the Bulgarian Ministry of Economy and Energy has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, financial support to address the study of the country’s possibilities for CO2 capture, transport and storage.

Technical assistance has been divided into four main tasks:

Task 1. Review and perform a preliminary assessment of CO2 Capture, Storage and Transport Technical Options.

Task 2. Assess the Bulgarian Capacity for Storage of CO2.

Task 3. Gain stakeholders support to CCS.

Task 4. Identify procedures and requirements for accessing the EC initiative.

GEOLOGICAL, HYDROGEOLOGICAL AND SEISMIC STUDY. RESEARCH SURVEYS EL COTO-2 AND CADIALSO-2. SPAIN.

The research wells El Coto-2 and Cadialso-2 are drilled to investigate the different subsoil formations and obtain a geological, geochemical, geomechanical and petrophysical characterization. Likewise, these wells have the objective of carrying out conventional and unconventional production tests by means of hydraulic fracturing that allow assess the potential as an unconventional gas field of the lower and middle Jurassic loam formations. These are exploration surveys, of a deviated and with a horizontal section when the objective formation is reached. The final depth of the wells varies between the 3,700 m planned for the Coto-2 survey in 3,950 in Cadialso-2.

In general, the following aspects are treated: Geological Study; Hydrogeological Study; Earthquake-tectonic.

PROJECT ON SUBSURFACE GEOLOGY FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF AREAS AND STRUCTURES WITH GEOLOGICAL STORAGE CAPACITY: IBERIAN CHAIN AND TAJO AND ALMAZAN BASINS. PROJECT ALGECO2.

The project consists of identifying, from the existing surface and subsurface geological information, the geologic formation and structures whose reservoir characteristics, geometric disposition, sealing capacity, allow to consider them as a potential storage target for CO2 storage.

Delimit, by means of the geologic data analysis, the spatial extension pairs of storage/seal formations.

Define the position (situation, limits) and geometry of potential structures and the suitability of its characteristics, incorporating information on the subsurface models previously elaborated and analyzed in these projects.

Establish geology-structural conceptual models in the area / structures that allow to evalua the structural complexity and evaluate the hydrogeological system.

To propose and to define future works and investigations by areas, structures and reservoir/seal formations.

SYSMIN PROGRAM GEOLOGICAL AND GEOTHEMATIC MAPPING OF THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC.

AIRTIFICIAL INFRASTRUCTURES has executed (in consortium with the IGME and the BRGM) the entire Geotematic Cartography of the Dominican Republic in 4 successive projects (1997-2011) of the SYSMIN Program financed by the EU, with an approximate budget of € 13 M

In the SYSMIN program, 102 geological sheets have been made at a 1: 50,000 scale and their corresponding geomorphological mapping, active processes, mineral resources and geochemistry at a 1: 100,000 scale (processed and managed by GIS).
