About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

Governments, regulators and energy companies are pursuing CO2 storage technologies to meet their net-zero carbon commitments as well as targets set by the international Paris Agreement on climate change. For successfully executing Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) projects, various technical, operational, economic and environmental risks and associated stakeholders need to be managed.

In this 5 half-day Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course, the methods for managing risk in CCS projects are addressed with a focus on CO2 injection and storage. The VILT course will also demonstrate how to assess storage capacity of a potential CO2 storage reservoir, model framing techniques, and well injectivity issues related to CO2 injection. The potential leak paths will be discussed such as reservoir seals, leakage along faults and aspects of well integrity. In the VILT course, the design of a monitoring programme will also be discussed. The VILT course will be supported by various case studies.

This VILT course will cover the following modules:

  1. CCS projects in an international context
  2. Site selection and site characterization
  3. Storage capacity assessment
  4. Injectivity assessment
  5. Containment assessment
  6. Measurement, monitoring & verification

 

 

On completion of this VILT course, participants will be able to:

  • Uncover the functions and associated components required to capture, transport and store CO2 in subsurface aquifers and (depleted) hydrocarbon reservoirs
  • Find a systematic and integrated approach to risk identification and assessment for CO2 storage projects (maturation)
  • Appreciate the requirements (physics modelling) and uncertainties to assess the CO2 storage capacity of a selected site.
  • Understand the challenges, data and methods to assess CO2 well injectivity and well integrity
  • Identify the leakage pathways of a selected storage site, and understand the assessment methods and associated uncertainties
  • Learn how to design a monitoring program

This VILT course is intended for all surface and subsurface engineers such as facility engineers, geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers, petrophysicists, production technologists/engineers, well engineers and geomechanical specialists. Also, (sub)surface team leads, project managers, business opportunity managers, decision executives, and technical risk assessment & assurance specialists will benefit from this VILT course as it provides a common framework and workflow to develop a CCS project.

For each class, it is highly recommended that a mix of disciplines mentioned above are represented to facilitate discussions from different perspectives.

This VILT course is built around cases in which teams work to identify and assess CO2 storage site issues using a systematic thought approach in this course. In addition, exercises are used to practise the aspects of the CCS risk assessment process. The VILT course provides a venue for discussion and sharing of good practices as well as opportunities to practise multi-discipline co-operation and facilitation.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own work issues and challenges and seek advice from the expert course leaders and other participants about all aspects of CCS.

This VILT course will be delivered online in 5 half-day sessions comprising 4 hours per day, with 2 breaks of 10 minutes per day.

Trainer 1:

Your expert course leader has more than 36 years of experience in the oil & gas industry with Shell. He gained broad experience in petroleum engineering, with expertise in integrated production systems from subsurface, wells and surface. He has had assignments in Production Technology, R&D, Production Chemistry, Rock Mechanics and Reservoir Engineering cEOR, with a proven track record in technology screening, development and deployment, field development planning, conceptual well design and Production System Optimization (PSO) of gas and oil fields as well as preparing Well, Reservoir & Facility Management (WRFM) strategies and plans. He had also worked on assignments in NAM and did fieldwork in Oman, Gabon and Shell Nigeria. He is a skilled workshop facilitator. He discovered his passion for teaching following an assignment in Shell Learning. During his time in Shell, he developed and taught technical courses to Shell professionals via blended learning.

Trainer 2:

Your second expert course leader has over 30 years of experience identifying, assessing and mitigating technical risks with Shell. The main focal point of his experience is in subsurface and Geomechanical risks. He is the the founding father of various innovations in how we assess risks by tool development (for bore hole stability, 3D geomechanical field evaluations and probabilistic assessment). He also developed an eye for people motivation, change management and facilitation. He was also responsible for the Geomechanical competence framework, and associated virtual and classroom training programme in Shell for 10 years.

Trainer 3:

Your third expert course leader has 30 years’ experience working in the oil & gas industry with Shell. He joined the company shortly after earning a PhD in Electrical Engineering and progressed into a reservoir engineer. He has broad reservoir engineering experience with an emphasis on reservoir simulation and modelling. He has taught courses in the use of Shells proprietary reservoir simulator and occasionally acted as a guest lecturer for Shell Learning.
