About the Course
In teaching this course, the instructors plan to: (1) spend most of the time discussing the practical aspects of CO2 flooding and sequestration, and keep discussion on the theoretical topics to bare minimum, (2) discuss the practical aspects of CO2 sequestration in more/less detail depending upon whether there is more/less interest in this topic at the location of the course presentation/SPE meeting, (3) give the course attendees as many practical and useful problems as possible to work on, at appropriate break points, and (4) provide each course attendee a workbook containing copies of the instructors’ PowerPoint presentations, backup materials and example problems.
