Spring. Intensive course. This is a course with limited capacity.
Objectives and Content
The course consists of two parts. The first part familiarizes the students with the most important CO2 storage projects, what we have learnt from these, and what geology-based decisions that are being made during site selection and operation of CO2 storage sites.
The second part covers practical hydrocarbon exploration. This part consists primarily of prospect evaluation drills, based on real exploration prospects.
After completing the course GEOV367 the students should be able to
- describe the most important geological experiences and challenges related to CO2 storage in the subsurface
- recognize the most critical elements associated with a hydrocarbon exploration prospect
- give a reasonable assessment of the potential of an undrilled target
