Fundamentals of Carbon Capture and Underground Storage (CCUS)

Virtual, Instructor-Led

Event Overview

Carbon Capture Underground Storage (CCUS) is a fundamental requirement for successful de-carbonization and is recognized as such by the International Energy Agency and the US Department of Energy. The broad commercial deployment of CCUS will impact industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, electric power, cement, and manufacturing as well as hydrogen, and the circular plastics economy.

This course will serve as an introduction to various aspects of CCUS.  Participants will be provided an awareness and understanding of the CCUS projects. It will establish basics such as how much CCS is needed to make a difference to global warming and explore what types of CO2 injection have already happened. This will be inclusive of dedicated long-term CCUS projects, pilot projects and CO2-enhanced oil recovery projects.

Attendees will receive 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDH) upon completion.
