Postgraduate course

Hydrocarbon Exploration and CO2 Storage

Teaching semester

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.

Learning Outcomes

 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

Required Previous Knowledge

Bachelor¿s degree in geology/geophysics or equivalent.

Grading Scale

The grading scale used is A to F. Grade A is the highest passing grade in the grading scale, grade F is a fail.
