Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) for Oil and Gas Industry
One of the key drivers of advanced economies is Climate Change and this challenge requires a transition from fossil fuel energy sources emitting carbon dioxide to renewable and sustainable sources that do not. One of the key methods for achieving this transition is to capture carbon dioxide emitted from present operations and to sequestrate the carbon in someway. This ranges from tree planting to burying the carbon dioxide in deep geological strata (geo-sequestration).
The course aims to describe the drivers for this change and the methodologies used to capture carbon dioxide. Specific proven technologies will be described. Once captured the carbon dioxide can be reused in some way and present and potential routes will be discussed. A key approach is geo-sequestration of carbon dioxide. This is now widely practiced and existing operations and their status will be described.
A key part of the course will be a discussion of the process economics for each of the parts of carbon capture, utilization and storage which will enable participants to quickly evaluate specific projects. The course will be illustrated with case studies across the field.
