Course Description

October 25, 2023 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM MDT (GMT-6)

This course is designed for government regulatory bodies.  Simulation has become a critical part of the CO2 injection permit application process and understanding the capabilities of simulation and how it can be used to predict potential risks is vital for regulators.        

This course will review the basics of CCS modelling including structural trapping, hysteresis, solubility, and mineralization. The course will also emphasize understanding potential risks related to CO2 injection such as cap rock integrity, fault-reactivation, near wellbore salt precipitation and ground water contamination.  

Current simulation requirements for permit applications will be reviewed as well as other risks that are currently not required but should be investigated by the applicant.  Example completed simulation models and reports will be examined including how to correctly interpret the results.

Ali, a Senior Reservoir Simulation Engineer (P. Eng) with +13 years of Canadian and international experience. Ali’s primary areas of interest include reservoir simulation studies (thermal and non-thermal), pressure transient analysis, rate transient analysis, DFIT and field development optimization in conventional and unconventional reservoirs. In past few years he has been heavily involved in energy transition projects including Geothermal and CO2 Sequestration. He earned his M.Eng and Ph.D degrees from the University of Calgary, all in petroleum reservoir engineering.
