Technical: Introduction to the geological storage of CO2

Aims

Governments around the world believe that geological storage of carbon dioxide captured at industrial sources will make a significant contribution to reducing atmospheric CO2 emissions. As the leading UK subsurface consultancy on the geological storage of CO2, Lloyd's Register has in-depth knowledge of the selection, design and operation of geological storage sites.

This course provides an introduction to the principles and practicalities of CO2 storage in subsurface geological formations. There is no assumption of previous knowledge in any technical discipline.

Benefits

Understand the issues from site selection to project delivery surrounding geological storage projects. This will cover oil fields (including CO2 enhanced oil recovery), depleted gas fields and saline aquifers with an emphasis on risks, uncertainties and the UK context, including the current legislative and policy status.

Get to know and understand the nature and basic physical principles of geological CO2 storage, the data requirements for site evaluation and both the capabilities and limitations of the data.

Gain an appreciation of the options, possibilities, merits and prognosis for introducing carbon storage in the UK to allow the continued use of fossil fuels for power generation in the medium term.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for environmental and energy industry executives, managers, financiers, technical staff, government advisors, civil servants, politicians, journalists and any who wish to know more about the subject of carbon storage and its relevance to the UK and EU in achieving CO2 emissions reduction targets.
