Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS and CCUS) are one of the most practical ways to reduce CO2 emissions. Basically CCS and CCUS is the large-scale injection of anthropogenic CO2 in the sub-surface [Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS)]. During this course, you will obtain a practical overview of CCS/CCUS opportunities including project evaluation tools. Read more...
For there to be aggressive execution at scale, there needs to be clear economic drivers. Fortunately, we have 50 years of CO2 project cost data, and a comprehensive understanding of which geological factors have the most significant impact on economics. We need to address CCS/CCUS in a logical and economic framework. The course draws on 50 years of EOR CO2 miscible flooding experience, 25 years of aquifer injection experience and wellbore leakage statistics.
This course reviews where we could practically store CO2 and discuss the options for storage and the logistics associated with CCS/CCUS. Workflow is also stressed in the course. The main focus is on aquifer storage, followed by injection into depleted aquifers. The course is field case and technically based, so we cover 3 major aquifer injection cases and two EOR field case. The learning from the field cases illustrates critical learning and emphasizes the lessons learned. The course addresses not only the upside potential, but also the risk factors. From risk factors, we use the factors to describe the surveillance program used in Monitoring, Measurement and Verification (MMV) work. Here 38 years of pilot design experience is hopefully highlighted.
