Lectures

Introduction to CCS: technologies, sites and societal aspects
– Introduction to geological storage of CO2 and examples of field projects (Auli Niemi, University of Uppsala, Sweden)
– Experiences from natural analogues (TBC)
– Capacity estimates of CO2 geological storage sites (Jesús Carrera, CSIC)
– Approaches to large scale problems (Auli Niemi, Uppsala University, Sweden)
– Public perception and societal challenges associated with CCS (Meritxell Martell, Merience, Spain).

Mathematical and numerical modeling of CCS
– Mathematical models for CO2 spreading and related processes (part 1; two-phase flow; part 2, non-isothermal transport, deformable porous media) (Jacob Bear, Technion, Israel)
– Numerical Modeling of Geological Storage – part 1; Methodologies, part 2; Results and examples. Hontomín example (Jesús Carrera, CSIC, Spain)
– Scale effects and upscaling (Marco Dentz, CSIC, Spain)
– Fractured rock hydrology and implications for carbon storage / sequestration (Robert Zimmerman, Imperial College, UK)
– Advanced methods for fracture propagation modeling (Adriana Paluszny, Imperial College, UK)  Injection well-reservoir interaction (Myra Kitron-Belinkov, Technion, Israel)
– Fluid mechanics and resulting geological response of sequestration (Herbert Huppert, University of Cambridge, UK)
– Hydro-mechanical processes (Henry Power, Geo-Energy Research Centre, UK)

CCS injection site
– Geophysical monitoring of CO2 geological storage sites, Ketzin case study (Fengjiao Zhang, Uppsala University)
– Characterization methods for geological reservoirs (Martin Sauter, University of Göttingen, Germany)
– Hydro-geophysical monitoring methods: lessons from shallow injection experiments at Maguelone (Philippe Pezard, CNRS, France)
– Characterization and monitoring of an injection experiment –  Example from Heletz, Israel (Jacob Bensabat, EWRE, Israel)
– Laboratory experiments for CO2 geological characterization and leakage risks (Linda Luquot, CSIC, Spain)
– Risk assessment in geological storage of CO2 (Jacob Bensabat, EWRE, Israel)

FIELD TRIP
A field trip to the Maguelone experimental site will be organised by CNRS after the course. This site offers a natural laboratory to study porous coastal reservoirs in a clastic and clay-rich context saturated with mostly saline fluids.
