Greetings to all energy enthusiasts. On behalf of SPE student Chapter RWTH Aachen, we would like to invite you to the Webinar on the topic: "The role of Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) in Energy Transition"
The Webinar will be held: On Friday 3rd of March 2023, at 5:30 PM (CET) The webinar ZOOM Link & Meeting ID: ZOOM Link : https://lnkd.in/e-KUhFDe ZOOM Meeting ID : 944 8192 4731 About the Speaker: YASIR YOUSUF THARA Reservoir Engineer at Wintershall Dea AG – Experienced in handling Carbon Management & Hydrogen from technical aspects of the CO2 storage (designing optimum well injection, enhancing gas production with CO2 injection, comprehensive risk identification in CO2 injection, etc.) in Northwest Europe (Germany, Denmark, UK, Norway, and Netherlands) and Algeria. Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering at Imperial College of London – focused on CCS assessment in Northern Lights CCS Project by Shell in Norway to apprehend the movement of CO2 plume, assessed the uncertain and sensitive parameters on the volume leaked CO2, and evaluated the detectability of plume in high permeability streak with 4D seismic techniques. The winner of the SPE East Meets West Congress – Student Paper Contest in Krakow (Poland) 2018. Save the date and see you soon
Couldn't attend the webinar? Don't worry, here is the summary
On Friday 3rd of March 2023, the SPE RWTH Aachen Student Chapter had the pleasure of welcoming Mr. Yasir Yousuf Thara, M.Sc., a Reservoir Engineer specializing in Carbon Management & Hydrogen from technical aspects of the CO2 storage (designing optimum well injection, enhancing gas production with CO2 injection, comprehensive risk identification in CO2 injection, etc.), to hold a presentation about “The role of Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) in Energy Transition.”
The session has participated from RWTH Aachen applied geoscience student students, and international participants either came from industry or academia. There were 45 people who took part in the event.
Mr. Yasir started his presentation by discussing the current annual CO2 emissions on the earth and how the world needs to implement more actions to address that issue. The implication of climate change by such emissions has been a hot topic that made Europe (Specifically NW Europe) come up with the notion to deploy a more cutting-edge effort in the energy transition to achieve net zero emissions in 2050 based on the Paris Agreement, mentioning the utilization of CO2 storage or Carbon Capture Storage (CCS).
Then, Mr. Yasir elaborated his presentation by explaining the general technical concept of CCS from the subsurface–surface aspect, how the ideal implementation of recent technology can support the Net Zero Emissions campaign in the future, and how is the current Global CCS Projects map. Moreover, Mr. Yasir continued his webinar by showcasing the ongoing regulation framework for CCS monetization (to stimulate the CCS campaign among many sectors) and how the company of Wintershall DEA takes part in global CCS projects as well.
At the end of the presentation, a Q&A session was open where participants had the opportunity to ask questions either through the chat box or directly to Mr. Yasir. Many questions demonstrated a high level of interest in the topic, from technical to non-technical aspects of the current CCS project, and how this campaign can benefit the companies and the world to make a real action of Energy Transition. Mr. Yasir answered and discussed all questions.
On behalf of the SPE Student Chapter at RWTH Aachen University, we thank Mr. Yasir for sharing valuable insights about CCS for the energy transition. We wish him all the best in his career and hope to see him again in our SPE Student Chapter.
