WANTED: Highly skilled geoscientist with broad understanding of geology, geophysics, petrophysics and reservoir engineering. Experience in time-lapse and multi-component seismic, reservoir modeling and visualization, designer wells, high resolution seismic processing, rock analysis and geological modeling. Should be able to use all of the tools in the toolbox yet understand the underlying science and rationale behind their use.

Converting folks to a whole new way of doing business in an industry historically reluctant to embrace change is always a challenge, to say the least. Early adopters of new technology, however, often can reap big rewards while blazing the trail for their more-cautious colleagues.

This course course will explore the design of new plays, optimized for the goals and constraints of CO2 sequestration, and to develop the tools to de-risk and sell those plays to investors and regulators. It will be of particular interest to subsurface geoscientists and engineers with an interest in CO2 storage in saline reservoirs.

The development and application of a fit-for-purpose CO2 injection model is presented in the context of a front-end engineering design for a new Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) project targeting a depleted gas reservoir in the North Sea. This course will provide an understanding of the impact of CO2 impurities on casing and tubing load cases. The course provides the background and results of the Fit-for-Purpose Casing and Tubing Analysis Program that was developed in collaboration with Harbour Energy for the UK Viking CCS Project.

As part of the international effort to combat global warming, significant attention is being given to ways to sequester (store for the long-term) carbon dioxide, which is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect. This one-day course will look at some of the ways in which carbon dioxide can be stored and provide a detailed review of the SRMS framework prepared by the Society of Petroleum Engineers to classify and categorize the storage quantities.
