This course considers the systematic evaluation of regional structure and stratigraphy to identify potential sites for geological storage of CO2, beginning with the typically wide range CCS development concepts, potentially encompassing onshore or offshore, new or adaptation of existing infrastructure and open aquifers as well as closed structures. It explores identification of potential storage complexes, assessment of storage capacity and relative CO2 containment risks of potential storage sites.
One of the main targets for CO2 storage is in depleted oil fields which have rock volumes which are already well characterised geologically, and much relevant infrastructure is already in place. CO2 injection may also generate enhanced oil recovery. This course outlines criteria and approaches that can be used for such screening, based on methods that have already been applied successfully. It concludes with formulation of an indicative development plan and integrated economic/technical criteria for ranking sites for further investigation.
This course is aimed at subsurface oil and gas professionals who are familiar with CCS and would like to understand the issues relating to the screening and selection of potential CO2 storage sites.
