Utilising publicly available datasets for identifying offshore salt strata and developing salt caverns for hydrogen storage

Batteries not included? PHS, Kinetics, & H2

In our session “Batteries not included? PHS, Kinetics, & H2” on 12th May, Craig Allsop, Civil and Environmental Engineering PhD Candidate, University of Strathclyde, delivered a presentation on Utilising publicly available datasets for identifying offshore salt strata and developing salt caverns for hydrogen storage.

Craig Allsop, Civil and Environmental Engineering PhD Candidate, University of Strathclyde

Craig Allsop is a GeoNetZero CDT Civil and Environmental Engineering PhD candidate at the University of Strathclyde, where he currently researches the micro-mechanics of CO2 capillary breakthrough and localised pathways in clay-rich caprocks. Before being awarded PhD funding in October 2021, Craig was a student at the University of Edinburgh achieving a first-class degree with distinction in both BSc Geology, and MSc GeoEnergy. During this time he established a novel methodology for offshore hydrogen salt cavern site selection and storage estimation. He is a passionate geoscientist who aims to make a significant contribution in our journey to decarbonation and net-zero.
