CCS4G Symposium 2022 – Super Critical Connections (Co-located event)

A symposium on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) for Geoscientists

In many ways the CCS world with its wells, reservoirs and sealing cap-rocks will be familiar to PESGB members. However, in other ways it will be quite different. The twin necessities of driving costs down and ensuring long-term public safety will demand collaboration and openness like never before.

In response to demand from the PESGB membership, we have scheduled this one-day symposium on the geoscience aspects of geological CO2 storage. The conveners are soliciting oral presentations from industry experts to meet the goal of offering deep technical insights into G&G topics pertinent to CCS.

If you are a petroleum-geoscientist considering ‘what next’ in a changing world, this event is designed for you. CCS is essential in meeting the worlds Net Zero targets. The anticipated exponential growth of CCS projects worldwide will need a major effort to re-purpose skills from the oil and natural gas industry.
