In addition to our online and classroom events, for 2023 we are also delighted to offer two UK-based field courses that have direct geoscience relevance to UK-based CO2 storage projects in the pipeline.
CCS is happening! As I write, CO2 is about to be injected from the Nini platform in the Danish North Sea as part of Project Greensand, the world's first cross-border offshore CO2 storage project facilitated by INEOS and partners. The NSTA in the UK is primed to award offshore storage licences in early 2023, after receiving interest from nineteen companies in areas off the coast of Aberdeen, Liverpool, Lincolnshire and Teeside. With this clearly defined need, combined with the will and skills to move CCS projects forward, what remains of this decade will undoubtedly see major growth in C02 storage.
At GeoLogica we have been developing a distinct group of courses aimed at up-skilling organisations and individuals who are transitioning to or are already involved with CCS projects. There is clearly more to CCS than storing CO2 underground and our broad spectrum of CCS-focused courses offer a variety of learning opportunities to address the geoscience, economic and social challenges. As with all subsurface projects, the requirement to 'problem solve' remains a key driver and stimulus for training within an organisation, in order to equip employees with the necessary skills for success.
