About the course

Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is a key technology that enables hydrocarbon-producing countries to meet zero-carbon targets. The UK, the EU, Norway and 23 countries have pledged to become carbon zero with most targeting carbon neutrality by 2050.

CCUS involves capture of waste CO2 - from power generation, industry, hydrogen production and biomass - for long-term geologically stable storage. A transport network must safely and reliably connect the CO2 capture to the storage location.

This course focuses on the design and operation of full-chain CCUS networks, from capture to storage. Learners will leave this course understanding the opportunities of CCUS projects and empowered to lead discussions about hydrocarbon developments in a zero carbon future.
