CO2 Geological Storage for Geoscientists & Reservoir Engineers
Who should attend?
This course provides participants with a practical knowledge on CO2 geological storage and also a clear understanding of the techniques and steps (evaluation, characterization, modeling, injection and evolution) related to CO2 geological storage.
This formation is for geoscientists, geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists and reservoir engineers.
Degree in geology, geophysics or reservoir engineering or equivalent experience.
INTRODUCTION TO CO2 GEOLOGICAL STORAGE
Reasons to make a CO2 geological storage.
Types of different reservoirs or geological formations that can store CO2.
Technical barriers for CO2 geological storage.
Issues and concerns in assessing a potential site and reservoir.
Challenges for a stable CO2 storage through time.
TECHNICAL WORKFLOW FOR CO2 GEOLOGICAL STORAGE
Data gathering and assessment.
Evaluation of parameters to define a potential site.
Characterization of the reservoir for CO2 storage and its uncertainties.
Drivers to define the best geological formation and rock properties needed.
Modeling the geology in a 3D Model for CO2 geological storage.
Modeling the fluids, dynamic interaction and well injection for CO2.
Modeling of the CO2 dynamic evolution through time inside the reservoir & its behaviors change.
Conclusion regarding all these steps for assessment and modeling.
