CCUS Student Week
This event is a collaborative effort between Petroleum Research School of Norway (NFiP), NorTex Petroleum Cluster, International Energy Cluster (IEC), NorCol Research and Education Collaboration (NorCol) and Colorado School of Mines (CSM).
This five day course will bring together 50 students from Norway, Brazil, India and USA; travel and accommodation will be paid by NFiP. Lecturers will be provided by the IEC partner institutions.
The Whole Value Chain approach means that lecturing will cover all aspects of CCUS, including capture, transport, utilization and storage of CO2.
Utilization will emphasize CO2 EOR. Successful global CO2 storage in the amounts needed to mitigate global warming requires industry participation. To realize industrial CO2 storage, sustainable economy, with opportunity to generate revenues, is crucial. CO2 EOR provides such an economic opportunity and will simultaneously store the huge amounts of CO2 required. This will provide synergy between the need for increased energy production and the need for reduction in emission of anthropogenic CO2, by storage in sedimentary rocks.
