Process and Safety > CO2 Transportation From Capture to Storage and Usage

About this training course

This 5-days comprehensive training course provides not only an introduction into the issues associated with the development of the pipeline transportation of CO2 from its Capture, it’s transportation, storage and usage but also provides an in depth understanding of the issues to be considered in the development, design and operations of these pipelines. The theme throughout this training course is CO2 Flow Assurance and Innovative Technologies.

Each training day will consist of lectures in the morning and a hands-on workshop in the afternoon. The workshop allows the participants to appreciate the design process associated with CO2 transport and its operations. Various software will be available during the workshop to predict thermo hydraulics and associated phase flows through CO2 pipelines and the attached infrastructure. Further software to assess surge and environmental safety will also be available. The CO2 pipeline design approach will consider an integrated solution through modelling the CO2 capture system as well as the host storage facility.

The participants will have a total appreciation of the methodology required to develop a CO2 transportation system and have an understanding of all of the Flow Assurance, risks, and operating issues and technology requirements.

After the completion of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the process required and identify data to analyse Flow Assurance for CO2 pipeline transport
  • Review and Identify the Flow Assurance issues required to be evaluated for CO2 pipeline transport design and operations methodology. These include; Hydrates, Slugging, Corrosion, Scaling, Fluid Phase Behaviour and transient conditions
  • Establish the studies to be undertaken for each area of CO2 transport including “Rules of Thumb” and software to be used
  • Comprehend the need for innovative methods and the technologies to mitigate Flow Assurance issues and the need for economics considerations
  • Appreciate the need for an integrated analysis of the CO2 transport system from the CO2 capture to the host storage facility
  • Gain an appreciation of the emerging and enabling technologies for CO2 transport and storage application
  • Dive deeper into the operational strategies requirements to mitigate Flow Assurance issues

This training course is suitable and will greatly benefit the following specific groups:

  • Reservoir Engineers
  • Flow Assurance Engineers
  • Thermodynamics Engineers
  • Process and Chemical Engineers
  • Pipeline Engineers
  • Facilities Engineers
  • Control and Subsea Engineers working in the Oil and Gas industries
  • Engineers in other disciplines may attend that require an appreciation of CO2 pipeline transport
  • Control and Subsea Engineers working in the Oil and Gas industries
  • Engineers in other disciplines may attend that require an appreciation of CO2 pipeline transport
  • Intermediate

The training instructor relies on a highly interactive training method to enhance the learning process. This method ensures that all participants gain a complete understanding of all the topics covered. The training environment is highly stimulating, challenging, and effective because the participants will learn by case studies which will allow them to apply the material taught in their own organization.

Course Duration: 5 days in total (35 hours).
