    Subsurface CO2 Storage Simulation - RILS (Remote Instructor Led Series)

    This is a Remote Instructor-Led Series (RILS) training. Remote classroom delivery is a modality that takes advantage of the instructor-led training content while allowing the same content to be delivered remotely.
    All training sessions will be delivered online with no face-to-face classroom attendance.

    CO2 can be captured from power stations, industrial sources such as cement factories and natural gas production. It can be utilized in chemical processes, ranging from fertilizer to food production, and in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and enhanced gas recovery (EGR), or it can be sequestered in geological structures, including saline aquifers, depleted oil and gas reservoirs and deep coal beds.
    Key characteristics of a storage site include:

    • Capacity—how much CO2 can be stored?
    • Injectivity—what injection rates are possible?
    • Containment—what are the risks of leakage?

    Addressing these points requires an understanding of the complex physical and chemical behavior of CO2. Reservoir simulation is a vital component of the multi-disciplinary studies needed to answer those questions. Engineers need to study CO2 behavior over the lifetime of the project. This requires specialist features, as well as all the software functionality used for dynamic simulation of oil and gas fields.

    This course introduces you to the basics of the reservoir simulation aspect of carbon capture sequestration (CCS) evaluation, including the physical phenomena and modeling approaches. It also demonstrates CCS evaluation method using a set of dynamic simulation options for CO2 storage with reservoir simulators ECLIPSE and INTERSECT:

    • Geological storage of CO2 in saline aquifers (CO2STORE)
    • CO2 injection in depleted gas reservoirs, for EGR and/or storage (GASWAT)
    • Three-phase compositional modeling of CO2 injection in depleted oil reservoirs, for EOR and/or storage (CO2SOL)

    The course will be delivered in three (3) sessions lasting ~ four (4) hours each. An intensive agenda also implies homework after each session. Hence full-time commitment is expected from participants.

    Each student will need the following to attend:

    1. Windows-based PC*
    2. USB Headset
    3. Internet Access capable for 720HD video-streaming
    4. Second monitor or tablet (highly recommended)
    5. Webcam (highly recommended)

    *Hands-on exercises will be performed using locally installed Petrel and ECLIPSE software; hence client machine must satisfy min. requirements. Alternatively, practical sessions can be accessed through DELFI Cloud Environment (subject to availability).
