PESA Host for Phil Ringrose SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course on Storage of Carbon Dioxide in Saline Aquifers

Thursday, 8 February @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm (Australia/Adelaide time)

Guest Speaker(s): Phil Ringrose

Philip S. Ringrose is a Specialist in reservoir geoscience at Equinor and Adjunct Professor in CO2 Storage at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He has been engaged with many CCS project developments over the last 15 years and has published widely on reservoir geoscience and fluid flow in rock media, including the textbooks Reservoir Model Design and How to Store CO2 underground.

Ringrose holds a BSc in geology from the University of Edinburgh and a PhD in applied geology from University of Strathclyde in Scotland.  He is a member of SEG, EAGE, and the Geological Society (London), and was the 2014-2015 President of the EAGE. In 2018 he was appointed as Honorary Professor at the University of Edinburgh and in 2020 he was elected as a member of The Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters (DKNVS).

PESA Host for Phil Ringrose SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course on Storage of Carbon Dioxide in Saline Aquifers

Thursday 8th February, 2024 @9am to 5pm (Australia/Adelaide Time) Cost: $575 USD


PESA will be hosting the SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course (DISC) on “Storage of Carbon Dioxide in Saline Aquifers – Building Confidence by Forecasting and Monitoring” presented by Phil Ringrose. This one-day short course will be held in Adelaide on Thursday, February 8th, 2024 (Ayers House venue). In this course, the science and technology underpinning CO2 storage in deep saline aquifer formations is reviewed using insights from several industrial-scale projects. The main factors, which limit storage capacity are analyzed – constraints governed by flow dynamics, injectivity, pressure development, and geomechanics. Then, this physical basis provides a framework for determining how to optimize monitoring methods.

All those interested in understanding the state of play in saline aquifer CO2 storage technology will benefit from this course. The primary target audience is multi-disciplinary subsurface teams, and the content covers relevant aspects of geoscience, geophysics, and reservoir engineering.

PESA members can register for the course through the SEG Website and use a coupon code to obtain the special SEG course rate of $575 USD. The SEG DISC registration site can be accessed using the following link.
