About this Training Course

This 3-day Advanced CO2 Storage Course will give you powerful insights and skills that can be applied instantly to CO2 storage site selection, development and operations.

Designed for CO2 storage site project managers, senior geologists and engineers and delivered by world-class experts, this course focuses on building a high-performance CO2 storage site development team and enhancing individual subsurface storage skills.

This course will delve into the detailed technical considerations in the selection and development of a CO2 storage site, including topics such as geological modelling, risk analysis, subsurface monitoring, and long-term verification. Further, consideration of regulatory requirements, environmental impacts and storage economics are also addressed. Participants will gain a profound understanding of the similarities and, significantly, the crucial differences in the development of a CO2 storage site compared to oil and gas site development, using site-specific case studies that CO2CRC have used to hone their CO2 storage skills. This course will equip participants with the expertise needed to navigate the complexities of CO2 storage confidently, elevating their skills and knowledge in this pivotal field through engaging workshop-style lessons and practical applications.

This Advanced CO2 Storage course also includes a field trip to western Victoria to visit Otway International Test Centre (OITC) and see the nearby 12 apostles. The OITC is where groundbreaking CO2 storage technology and industry expertise converge. Participants will gain an unparalleled opportunity to gain firsthand insights into the latest advancements shaping our industry and access state-of-the-art facilities and real-world testing scenarios. The Otway International Test Centre transforms this training course into an immersive, forward-looking experience that empowers participants to see CO2 storage developments in action.  

Various countries have established and put into practice regulations pertaining to the geological storage of CO2 over recent years. These global regulatory frameworks are multifaceted and are reflective of a wide range of domains across which CCS has relevance. Understanding the variety of regulatory strategies in different regions is crucial to ensure the successful deployment of CCS projects. A key component of this course will examine the regulatory framework supporting CCS in a variety of jurisdictions including the Gulf of Mexico in the United States, as well as frameworks across the Asia Pacific. Via a workshopped example, the course will highlight the key milestones and challenges associated with each jurisdiction.

    I lead the strategy for the South West Hub Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project, an initiative focused on reducing carbon dioxide emissions in Western Australia. At its Otway National Research Facility CO2CRC has safely demonstrated the end-to-end process of CCS. This work satisfies best practice methods for operators and provided confidence to regulators, government and the community that CCS is safe and reliable. Otway has been a great resource for the CCS community as an example of how CCS can operate both as a storage facility and within a community. I have been able to draw on CO2CRC’s experience for assistance in the Western Australian project and also used Otway as a resource to take visitors to the site. CO2CRC’s research has provided evidence that CCS is a viable option for reducing emissions and made my job on the South West Hub project easier.

    As a storage research leader in the US, I have found that the CO2CRC’s Otway program is a valuable collaborator and source of innovative data that broadens the global experience with this new technology. The initial Otway experiment, which showed successful methods as well as barriers to plume tracking in a depleted gas reservoir was a valuable contributor to the international state-of-knowledge. The following highly successful and well-published experiments in saline aquifer settings have advanced modeling and monitoring technologies. I highly value the creativity and technical skill of the technical team and their generosity in sharing knowledge and expertise with their global counterparts and always look forward to the next data review opportunity.
