Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Project Risks and How to Manage Them
15th November 2021 - 19th November 2021
About this Training Course
Governments, regulators, and commercial parties are increasingly pursuing CO2 storage opportunities as it becomes increasingly clear that CCS is an important contribution to meet the Paris Agreement targets on Climate Change. For a successful CCS project, various technical, operational, economical and environmental risks and associated stakeholders need to be managed.
The objective of this training is to create awareness of potential risks and offer a structured approach to assess potential storage sites in terms of their CO2 storage capacity, injectivity, containment and monitoring. The training features relevant physical-chemical phenomena (incl. CO2 phase behaviour), including plume migration, well and seal integrity, geomechanical aspects, as well as practical exercises.
Who Should Attend
All surface and subsurface engineers, such as
– Facility engineers
– Geologists, geophysicists
– Reservoir engineers
– Production technologists/engineers
– Engineers and geomechanical
– (Sub)surface team leads
– Project managers
– Business opportunity managers
– Decision executives
– Technical risk assessment
– Assurance specialists
Note: for each class it is highly recommended that a mix of disciplines mentioned above are represented to facilitate
discussions from different perspectives.
