This course covers the fundamental characteristics and properties of CO2 and the implications for underground sequestration. You'll also cover regulations, tools, techniques and long-term storage strategy. Our experienced and qualified instructor will be a valuable resource to you as you work through this 40-hour online course. This course has been designed to expand your knowledge and expertise with opportunities to characterize and evaluate subsurface geology including geoscientists, engineers and technologists.
ENVS-014 is part of our Carbon 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:
- detail the fundamental characteristics and properties of CO2 and implications for safe and secure underground sequestration
- describe current and emerging regulations that impact CO2 underground sequestration
- demonstrate an understanding of the tools and techniques used to assess the capacity, injectivity and containment of CO2 underground and how to use them
- demonstrate an understanding of the components of a long-term CO2 storage strategy that includes zone selection and design, drilling plans, wellbore design, injection and well testing.
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.
