CCS-M T6: Training Course on Sequence Stratigraphy
Apr. 25, 2016
CCS-M T6 was specifically for geoscientists from Cambodia, Lao-PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam, and covered the concepts and practical applications of sequence stratigraphy for petroleum exploration and mapping of geological CO2 storage sites. The course involves both lectures and workshop exercises with mini projects to emphasize the recognition and correlation of sequences stratigraphic surfaces on well log cross-sections, seismic transects and outcrops. A team of experts from PETRONAS conducted the training course at the Sunway Hotel, Phnom Pehh. A 1-day field trip was also organized by the host organization, General Department of Petroleum, MIME (Cambodia) to the mountain city of Bokor. .
CCS-M S3: CCOP-DMF Workshop on the application of UNFC 2009: Classification and Reporting of Petroleum Resources/reserves and CO2 Injection Projects
Dec. 08, 2014
The CCOP Technical Secretariat together with the Department of Mineral Fuels - Thailand, conducted the Workshop on Classification and Reporting of Petroleum Resources/Reserves and Injection Projects (coded S3) in Bangkok on 8-11 December 2014. A total of 37 participants from CCOP member countries - Cambodia, Indonesia, Korea, Lao - PDR, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Vietnam and the host Thailand, attended the Workshop. The main objectives is to enhanced the capacities of the CCOP member countries in the classification and reporting of oil and gas resources and reserves, and CO2 injection projects, based on internationally recognized standards. The Workshop leveraged on the existing United Nations Framework Classification for Fossil Energy and Mineral Reserves and Resource 2009 (UNFC) and Expert Group on Resource Classification (EGRC) where CCOP TS, Thailand and other member countries are active members and also the experiences of Gaffney, Cline & Associates, a premier petroleum consulting company.
CCS-M T4: National Assessment of CO2 Storage Sites and CO2 for EOR
May. 27, 2014
Training Course 4 (T4
) in Penang, Malaysia on 27-29 May 2014 was the 4th
out of 5 training courses planned in the Facilitation Phase of CCS-M. The objectives of T4
are to have a deeper understanding of the methodologies and criteria for the selection of technically accessible storage resources and the use of CO2 for enhancing oil/gas recovery (EOR
). Hands-on exercises to assess and test the site selection criteria and storage estimation procedures were the main agenda items. A 1-day field trip (30 May) was organized by PETRONAS
to various interesting sites in Penang, including the famous Penang Hill and Fruit Farms.
CCS-M T3: Communicating CCS to the Public
Feb. 18, 2014
CCS-M T3 is the third training course conducted by the CCOP Technical Secretariat (TS) in cooperation with the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI), Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, PETRAD and Geological Agency Indonesia (GAI) under the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. Given the vital role CCS will play in addressing climate change it is important to communicate the benefits of the CCS technology to the public. Public engagement and communication activities are keys to the success of individual CCS projects.
CCS-M T2: CO2 Storage Capacity Estimation
Aug. 20, 2013
CCS-M T2’s objectives are to enhance the knowledge of the participants on methodologies for calculating CO2 storage capacities of subsurface reservoirs, the various types of geological storage systems and applied technologies. This event was conducted by the CCOP Technical Secretariat (TS) in cooperation with the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI) and Thailand through the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) and Department of Mineral Fuels (DMF). The resource persons were from Australia, GCCSI, International Energy Agency (IEA) and Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD). In addition, resource persons from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and Statoil (Norway) delivered call-in presentations (via the Internet) on case studies related to the topic.
CCS-M T1: Training Course on CO2 Geological Storage Site Selection and Characterization
Apr. 30, 2013
The 4-day CCS-M (T1) Training Course on CO2 Geological Storage Site Selection and Characterization was conducted in Bali immediately after the (S1) Launching Seminar of CCS-M. The main objectives is to enhance the capacities of the participants from CCOP Member Countries in the assessment of geological sites for the safe and long term storage of CO2. Leading the training course are Prof. John Kaldi and Dr. Peter Neal, prominent geoscientists from Australia's Cooperative Research Centre for Green House Gas Technologies (CO2CRC). Also present are CCS experts from various Norwegian agencies that were invited courtesy of PETRAD - Dr. Per Christer Lund (Innovation Norway- Tokyo), Dr. Harald Johansen (IFE CO2 Center), and Mr. Mike Carpenter (DNV KEMA CCS).
