COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will discuss carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) from a geologic perspective. Examples from carbon capture utilization (CCU) including enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects will be shown. Known and proposed carbon capture storage (CCS) examples will also be covered.
- CCUS Options.
- Screening Criteria for CCU.
- Screening Criteria for CCS.
- Relevant Mineral Reactions to Consider.
- Monitoring of Projects.
- Induced Seismicity.
