Course Description

This course covers the fundamental characteristics and properties of CO2, technical aspects and various means of transportation. You'll also learn about the implications, benefits, limitations and regulations associated with the transportation of CO2. Our industry-trained instructor will be a knowledgeable resource to you as you work through this 40-hour online course. This course has been designed to upskill the workforce with experience in operations or maintenance of gaseous and/or liquid fuel pipelines.

ENVS-013 is part of our Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) micro-credential series. The series is intended for upskilling energy services workers, engineers, geoscience professionals, operators, technologists or trades professionals.

Note: Registration for this course closes two days before the course start date.

Upon successful completion of this course, you’ll be able to:

  • describe the fundamental characteristics and properties of CO2 including compression, hydraulics and implications of CO2 transportation
  • assess the technical readiness, benefits and limitations associated with types of CO2 transportation
  • evaluate the application of different modes of carbon transportation including strengths and challenges
  • detail current and emerging carbon transportation regulations
  • demonstrate an understanding of how to apply knowledge of pipeline transportation of CO2 gas to the selection, operation and maintenance of appropriate equipment and systems
  • demonstrate an understanding of how to apply knowledge of pipeline transportation of liquid CO2 to the selection, operation and maintenance of appropriate equipment and systems.

You’ll demonstrate your skill and knowledge acquisition through quizzes, written assignments and exams. This online course is structured and guided. All coursework must be completed as per the course schedule and no later than the course end date.
