This popular course is based on the SPE Monograph Volume 22, Practical Aspects of CO2 Flooding, and is an outgrowth of The University of Texas of the Permian Basin and the SPE CO2 conferences, and training courses held in Midland, Texas over the past 13 years. The instructors spend most of the time on the practical aspects of CO2 flooding, keeping the theoretical aspects to a bare minimum. Instructors also discuss the economics of CO2 flooding compared to waterflooding. If there is enough interest among the participants, there will also be a discussion of CO2 geosequestration. Each attendee will receive a workbook containing copies of the instructors’ PowerPoint presentations, and solutions to the problems given in class.
This course will discuss practical, state-of-the-art techniques for optimizing gas field assets -techniques that are based on the concept of integrated asset modeling (IAM), and working together through an asset team. In addition, because of the tremendous interest in developing and optimizing shale gas and tight oil field assets, around the world, an introduction to this topic is included in this course. Integration of reservoir, well inflow, wellbore, pipeline, and compressor models bring together all of the interested parties and allows for an integrated optimal solution, rather than different parties working in vacuum and arriving at solutions for the separate components that do not fit well. This course goes beyond standard nodal analysis courses available in the industry, as in this course the reservoir and facilities components are also incorporated. The instructors have extensive industry experience in optimizing gas field assets and using integrated asset modeling approach for achieving that objective.
Geological Sequestration of CO2 Course Description This popular course introduces various aspects of the geological storage or “sequestration” of CO2, an important tool for combating global warming. Although much of the technology is similar to that of CO2 enhanced oil recovery (EOR), there are important differences. This course draws upon the instructors extensive practical experiences in CO2 EOR projects and the development of CO2 storage projects. Learning Level Intermediate Course Length 1 Day Why Attend Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), another name for CO2 sequestration, is an emerging technology that is important for the future of the industry. The environmental aspects of CO2 make this a 21st century skill.
