Carbon Capture Workshops

WORKSHOP 1: Decarbonization of Oil & Gas Operations

Introduction

The carbon capture industry is experiencing rapid growth and expansion in several regions and around the globe. In the past three years, Canada has increased its attention to carbon dioxide emissions by establishing a carbon net-zero short and long goals for 2030 and 2050. The main objective is to make the Canadian economy either emit no greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions or offset these emissions. One of the methods to achieve these goals is employing technologies that can capture carbon emissions before they are vented into the atmosphere.

In Canada, the oil & gas sector is the highest emitting sectors and adopting the decarbonization solution for it is not an easy task due to many technical, economical, commercial, and experience reasons. However, the most pressing reasons are the lack of understanding of carbon capture technologies and the shortage of skilled engineers in this space.

Enhancing engineers’ skills requires better understanding of the type of emissions and their emitting sources, carbon capture processes, how to navigate and screen carbon capture system, and how to design a process.

The workshop will feature the utilization of ProTreat® rate-based process simulation software from Optimized Gas Treating, Inc. (Texas, USA) in designing the amine-based carbon capture processes. ProTreat® can also be used to monitor, optimize, troubleshoot and/or revamp these processes. 

This intensive workshop provides decision makers, planners, designers, operators, and engineers with the fundamentals to better understand the amine-based carbon capture process, which is suitable for the oil and gas GHG CO2 emission emitting facilities. The workshop participants will learn the methodology to evaluate carbon capture options, design a process, establish a project and its phases and more.
