"Geomechanics Aspects in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)"

Course Description

This course provides an overview of the most critical geomechanical aspects of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). Attendees will learn about geomechanics principles, concepts, and workflows as they apply to the assessment of the three pillars of CCS: capacity, injectivity and containment. We will discuss the main geomechanical risks and how they may vary from project to project. We will also address data requirements to effectively de-risk a project as well as the type of models that are best suited to address geomechanical risks and their impact on project performance. Case studies will be covered as practical examples to demonstrate workflows and screening tools. Both geoscientists and engineers can benefit from attending this introductory course, as well as managers and decisions makers.


About the instructors:


Ewerton Araujo, PhD - Geomechanics specialist with 20 years in the oil and gas industry. Ewerton started as an R&D engineer before joining GeoMechanics International, where he worked on projects in the Americas, Middle East, and Africa. After that, he joined Equinor as the SME for geomechanics of USA and Canada assets, and following that, was hired by BHP to implement and develop the geomechanics discipline in the Petroleum business. His expertise covers all geomechanics-related aspects of wells planning, drilling, completions, operation, and abandonment, in addition to reservoir geomechanics during exploration, appraisal, and production. He is currently a senior consultant and managing partner at Subsurface Alliance LLC.


Jorge Pastor, PhD - Geomechanics specialist with 25+ years of experience in the oil and gas industry. Jorge started his career as R&D engineer developing geomechanical simulators for Petrobras. In 2004, he joined Schlumberger where he was directly involved in 1D and 3D projects for Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, and USA. Later, he joined BHP in Houston where he led the development of coupled 3D projects for multiple Gulf of Mexico fields. He used these models for wellbore stability, sanding, compaction/subsidence, cap/casing integrity and fault reactivation analyses. His expertise also includes interpretation and QC of rock mechanics tests as well as software development. Dr. Pastor is currently a senior consultant and managing partner at Subsurface Alliance LLC.


Fermin Fernandez-Ibañez, PhD - Geoscientist with 15+ years of experience in Development, Production, and Research & Technology. Structural geology and geomechanics expert. He worked as geomechanics consultant for GeoMechanics International before joining ExxonMobil where he became corporate SME for fractured reservoirs. He also has experience in geothermal and CCS projects. Fermin has worked assets around the world, including SE Asia (PNG, Vietnam, Indonesia, Australia-NZ, Malaysia), South America (Colombia, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil pre-salt), Europe/Caspian (Kazakhstan, West Med), Kurdistan, Gulf of Mexico, and Canada (SAGD). Currently, he holds a senior consultant and managing partner position at Subsurface Alliance LLC.
