Lecture about Carbon Capture and Storage | SPE TUC Student Chapter | 06.03.2024 | 18:00

The SPE Student Chapter of Technical University of Crete organizes the upcoming talk of Mr.Rawdon J.H. Seager, Technical Director, Reservoir Engineering Director-Global Quality Assurance.
The topic of the event is “Carbon Capture and Storage and the SPE CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS)”.
This online event will be held on Wednesday 6 March 2024 at 18:00 EET (UTC+2).

You can participate online via the Google Meet platform.
We are looking forward to your participation!

After the lecture, members will understand the importance of carbon capture and storage in the transition to a lower carbon future and know how to evaluate quantities consistently using the SRMS. As part of the international effort to combat global warming, significant attention is being given to ways to sequester (store for the long-term) carbon dioxide, which is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect. It is therefore critical that there is a universal means to record the storable quantities by recognizing the maturity of the projects to be implemented and the confidence that can be placed in the estimated volumes to be sequestered. This talk will look at some of the ways in which carbon dioxide can be stored and provide a review of the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS) framework prepared by the Society of Petroleum Engineers to classify and categorize the storable quantities.

The talk will cover:

  • An overview of carbon capture, utilization and storage, including the role of greenhouse gasses in global warming
  • Discussion of typical modes of storage of carbon dioxide in saline aquifers and depleted oil and gas fields
  • Review of the CO2 Storage Resources Management System (SRMS), including principles and key definitions
  • Discussion of economics and evaluation methods
  • A hypothetical example

Rawdon Seager is a reservoir engineer with over 50 years’ experience in the international oil and gas arena with Shell, Huffco and, since 1985, Gaffney, Cline & Associates, where he is Chief Reservoir Engineer and Global Director of Quality Assurance. He is currently involved in CCS studies and application of the SRMS.
He has a BSc in Physics from Bristol University and an MSc in Petroleum Engineering from Imperial College, London. Rawdon is past Chairman of the SPE Oil and Gas Reserves Committee and past member of the Board and current Chair of the Reserves Definitions Committee of the SPEE.

At the end of the event, all the participants will receive a certificate of attendance. This is an event you won't want to miss! Make sure to mark your calendar and join us.
