Carbon Capture > Geological CO2 Storage - Picking the Right Reservoir

About this Training

Geological sequestration of CO2 is emerging as an important tool to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 for combating global warming. Much of the technology used for CO2 sequestration is similar to existing oil and gas fields operations, however, there are important differences which require adaptation of the industry’s subsurface knowledge to this new application.

The essential questions for any CO2 storage project are: (a) where can we store the CO2? (b) how much CO2 can we inject? (c) can we store it safely? And (d) can we store it cost-effectively? This course will address these questions by using historical practices developed in the oil and gas industry and adapting engineering design concepts to the CO2 storage task.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Address the potential CO2 leakage paths
  • Assess the storage volume capacity by investigating the combined effects of capillary pressure, salinity, and in-situ thermodynamic conditions on CO2-brine/reservoir fluid-rock interactions in a saline aquifer or depleted reservoir
  • Quantify the uncertainty with different realisations to scale geological properties, major faults, and their sealing capacity as well as rock compressibility
  • Identify the uncertainties affecting the future field behaviour and reduce their impact by optimizing the field performance through systematic application of integrated reservoir management and multidisciplinary technologies
  • Understand the impact of CCS on the energy landscape, society and climate

The course has been specifically designed for professionals involved in CCS from the following disciplines:

  • Geologist
  • Reservoir engineers
  • Production and completion engineers
  • Business development managers
  • Upstream asset managers
  • CO2 sequestration and CCS project managers
  • Government regulators
  • Intermediate

Your expert course leader holds a Ph.D. in geological storage of CO2 and Reservoir Engineering from the Technical University Glausthal in Germany. She has over 20 years of reservoir engineering experience in international operating companies in Kazakhstan, Iraq, Norway, Germany and Turkey including oil and gas fields in Malta, Morocco, Yemen, Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Denmark and UK. She has hands on experience in modelling of CO2 injection in Ketzin Pilot Site in Germany as well as Snohvit and Sleipner fields in Norway. She is an expert on field development planning and reservoir management of onshore, offshore platform/subsea oil and gas condensate assets and she has extensive experience in fractured carbonate reservoirs.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.

I like the flexibility of the instructor. She accepts change and does not stick to a specific way of conducting the course material
