This course is ideal for geologists, researchers, operators, landmen, managers, technology entrepreneurs, engineers, and students who want to learn about carbon capture, transportation and operations.
Upon successful completion of this course, the learner will be able to define and describe processes used in carbon dioxide capture, transportation and processing, as well as CO2 flood operations and well equipment. Learners will also be able to evaluate and discuss monitoring, reporting, and verification of CO2 injection, sequestration, and CO2-based enhanced oil recovery operations.
This course discusses how CO2 is captured and separated from other emitted gases in industrial applications, and it provides an overview of the processes by which the carbon dioxide is compressed before it enters a pipeline. Predominant methods of transporting carbon dioxide are discussed, along with hazards and risks, and the necessary monitoring. The course closes with an overview of worldwide demonstration projects.
Required Work: For each unit, readings, research/review of recent articles, and a short paper in response to guiding questions.
