CCUS / Geological Sequestration of CO2 is emerging as an important tool to get to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 for combating global warming, and over the last few years, has developed rapidly. Much of the technology is similar to 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.
