Masterclass Courses 

Risk Assessment of CO2 Storage by Understanding Coupled Thermo-hydro-chemical-mechanical Processes

Date: 30 September - 1 October

Evaluating the risks for CO2 storage is a key aspect in determining the technical viability of such projects. This
course will explain coupled phenomena in terms of i) reservoir conformance and ii) storage integrity by discussing the principles of coupled processes affected mainly by changes in pressure (effective stress), temperature and geochemistry in subsurface storage and sealing formations.

Instructors: Andreas Busch and Eric Mackay (Heriot-Watt University)


CO2 Storage Project Design and Optimization (Saline Aquifers)

Date: 2 October 2024

The course will explain the overall design of CO2 storage projects, focusing on sandstone (siliciclastic) saline aquifer systems, and covering: the project timeline, site characterisation needs, trapping mechanisms, the main fluid dynamical controls, methods for storage capacity estimation, well design and placement, basics of CO2 transport and management injectivity, geomechanical and pressure management, monitoring methods, and approaches forlong-term storage assurance.

Instructor: Philip Ringrose (Norwegian University of Science & Technology, Norway)


Flow Mechanics for Geological CO2 Storage

Date: 3 October 2024

This one-day course will cover the fundamentals of flow in porous media, essential for the safe and efficient planning and operation of geological CO2 storage. After completing the course you will be able to explain why fluids move in a reservoir and how these movements can be modelled with the help of Darcy’s law and the principle of mass conservation.

Instructor: Florian Doster (Heriot-Watt University)
