Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for geologists, researchers, operators, landmen, engineers, and students who want to learn about carbon capture and sequestration.
Upon successful completion of this course, the learner will be able to define carbon capture and sequestration, explain how and when it is used, discuss geological characteristics of suitable formations, describe injection and monitoring, and discuss current cases of CCS in action.
This course covers the fundamental concepts involved in carbon capture and sequestration, and explains the geological conditions required for successful carbon storage. It profiles extraction, transportation, injection, and monitoring of CO2.
