Training Method

Courses are accessed on the RPS Learning Hub, each course consists of a series of modules of up to 90 minutes learning time, including self-assessment elements. Learning materials are structured into short sections, each including interactive text and image content, animations, video and audio. An end of course quiz is scored to provide the learner with their learning progress.

Course Overview

  1. Understand the role of CCS in CO2 emissions-reductions.
  2. Develop awareness of the role of geoscience and reservoir engineering in CCS.
  3. Understand CO2 as a fluid in the subsurface and how it differs from oil, gas and water.
  • CO2 in the atmosphere and options to cut CO2 emissions
  • Geological CCS, CCS as mitigation strategy
  • CO2-EOR and CCS: fate of CO2 in the subsurface
  • CO2 phase behaviour and properties, CO2 trapping
