Course Content

Implementing carbon capture, usage, and storage (CCUS) projects at large scales is becoming a growing subject of interest for the geophysics community. Massive storage tanks will be needed, either in regional saline aquifers or in depleted oil and gas fields. Geophysical experience from standard oil and gas projects will have to be transferred and developed to address known but also new challenges, such as regional saline aquifer exploration and characterization. This workshop will present what is already achievable but also the unknown and specificities that the geophysical community will face in the future. Technical presentations will serve as an opening for discussion between the audience and the invited speakers.

Agenda
  • The role of geophysics in the characterization of carbon storage sites: Larry Myer, Keylogic
  • Insights into CCUS in Unconventional Reservoirs Ali Tura, Yanrui Ning, Colorado School of Mines
  • CO₂ storage resources in large saline aquifers: pressure developments, geophysical implications: Sylvain Thibeau Total Energies
  • Derisking geologic CO₂ storage using passive microseismic monitoring: Tom Kettlety. University of Bristol
  • Using geophysics to de-risk and monitor the Quest Carbon Storage project: Simon O'Brien, Shell - Canada
  • Using fluid dynamics to improve CO₂ detection from time-lapse seismic data in the reservoir and overburden: Philip Ringrose, Equinor
  • Accelerating CCUS Deployment by Integrating Strategic Monitoring with Data-Informed, Risk-Based Decision Making: Key Initiatives from the U.S. Department of Energy Carbon Management Program, Robert Dilmore, Department of Energy
  • Discussion
