Course Description
This introductory course addresses the key risk mitigation issues facing Geothermal, Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS), and Helium projects where specific applied geophysical apps can provide business value-add solutions. Geophysical fundamentals are introduced in the first session enabling the learner's the ability to understand basic applied geophysics and the decision processes involved in making business decisions concerning geophysics.

Fundamentals of Geothermal, Cardon Capture Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS), and Helium are introduced before specific case histories. Case histories from the oil and gas industry are used where appropriate along with specific Energy Transition case studies to illustrate the geophysical tools that the engineers or geoscientists would apply to mitigate risk, solve a specific development problem and improve the business success and value of the project.

The course is designed to identify specific operational problems and provide an integrated geophysical tool to help solve that problem. The course will address issues such as:

  • Datum and surface terrain validation and verification
  • Drill hazards: Including lost circulation, depleted and overpressured reservoirs
  • Drills Hazards: Staying in-zone and/or avoiding getting stuck
  • Visualizing, planning, and encountering optimal reservoir zones
  • Reservoir characterization
  • Project area fault and structure assessments
  • Natural and industry induced seismicity assessments and risks
  • 4D reservoir monitoring for CCUS and Geothermal projects
  • Helium Exploration

Simplified Machine Learning applications and workflows will be discussed to add clarity and enhance the learner’s ability to decide which geophysical techniques are of value to integrate into their project.

The case histories clearly illustrate where integrated geological, geophysical and engineering data are critical to the project’s success.
Who Should Attend
This course is ideal for Geoscientists with a least 5 years of experience and their asset team Engineers. It is also recommended for Management, Team Leaders, and Financial Analysts as the course gives them the confidence to ask tough questions and the case histories to give them a qualitative learning experience without the need to understand all of the technical details.
