About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) 

Repurposing Subsurface Petroleum Skills for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCUS) is a Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course conducted in an interactive manner. It will include presentations by the instructors and interactive quizzes and exercises, including hands-on experience particularly with the exercises. Participants will be required to download and install EasiTool prior to the course commencement.

By the end of this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course, participants will be able to:

  • Outline the regulatory, policy, and financial drivers and constraints for CCUS
  • Describe the subsurface requirements for a successful storage project, including similarities and differences with oil and gas exploration.
  • Understand the workflow and perform the key tasks for defining, developing and permitting a CCUS project, including site selection, characterization, risk assessment, and monitoring for operational and post-operational phases.
  • Apply your subsurface knowledge and skills in oil and gas development to the concepts, processes, and workflows of the CCUS industry
  • Tools used will include Excel spreadsheets and Dr Hosseini’s EASiTool, an enhanced analytical simulation tool to estimate CO2 storage capacity in saline aquifers at reservoir and basin-scales.

This VILT course is aimed at subsurface oil and gas professionals and first-level leaders who would like to develop their skills for use in the energy transition, specifically in the emerging industry of carbon capture and geologic storage (CCUS), such as:

  • Geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers and other technical subsurface O&G professionals interested in CCUS
  • First-level leaders and others tasked with developing and/or assuring geologic storage for CCUS projects
  • Recent graduates in petroleum geoscience and reservoir engineering who want to develop skills in CCUS

This VILT course will also benefit professionals from well engineering, petroleum engineering, finance and planning who support exploration activities. Participants are required to prepare a mini-poster (two PowerPoint slides) for the virtual classroom as background material for discussion during the VILT sessions.

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

Your first course trainer is a geologist with broad experience in both CCUS and in the petroleum industry.  He held a variety of exploration roles over 16 years with BP, including Advisor in Structural Geology and Head of Discipline for Exploration Structure and Tectonics.  He has worked over 50 basins on 5 continents and taught courses in exploration and structural geology to hundreds of geoscientists in BP and partner companies and universities. Since joining the Gulf Coast Carbon Center in 2019, he has focused on adapting petroleum exploration workflows to defining, screening and de-risking storage sites for CO2.  He has authored reports on site screening for IEAGHG and multi-national companies.  He is currently leading work on subsurface containment risk assessment and mitigation.

Your second course trainer has a PhD in Petroleum Engineering from University of Tulsa, OK. He currently holds the Research Scientist position at Gulf Coast Carbon Center (GCCC), The Bureau of Economic Geology, The University of Texas at Austin working on various topics related to multiphase fluid flow in porous media. GCCC focuses on CO2 enhanced oil recovery and geologic storage, an essential component of CCUS. His team has led multiple field and laboratory studies on many aspects of the CCUS process, including estimating underground storage capacity, optimizing enhanced oil recovery to both store CO2 and recover oil, designing and implementing commercial monitoring programs, and assessing geosystem response to injection. The most recent projects includes 1) monitoring of West Ranch field where CO2 captured from the largest post-combustion, carbon-capture facility in the world is used for EOR operations and 2) the Gulf of Mexico Partnership for Offshore Carbon Storage, one of the first efforts in the U.S. to assess the geologic layers below the seafloor for CO2 storage.

Your third course trainer is a geochemist who has developed and implemented environmental monitoring programs at several large-scale U.S. Department of Energy CCUS project sites. She led a response team of scientists to assess alleged leakage at the Kerr Farm near the Weyburn CO2 Storage project in Canada. Dr. Romanak has collaborated on international projects in Canada, Australia, and Japan and has developed an innovative method for environmental monitoring to satisfy regulatory environmental requirements for CCUS projects.  She serves on multiple international CCUS Advisory boards and regularly informs global policy within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
