SPE Workshop 2

CCS Evaluation: From Geoscience to the Economics

Monday 5 June 2023 | Room Lehar 4



  • Ina Hadziavdic (SPE VBS Section Chair)
  • Sirine Trichili (SPE VBS Program Chairperson)
  • Akos Kiss (former SPE VBS Chairperson)



As CCS is gaining more interests in the industry, so our geoscience and Petroleum engineering professionals are more keen to gain additional insights and perspectives, how to upgrade the knowledge they have and implement it in the CCS projects. This workshop will show exactly that: we start with the geophysical screening and finish with the economical evaluation and risk assessment. The workshop has been developed for the professionals eager to learn and develop their knowledge and prepare for the upcoming CCS projects!


Participant Profile

Geophysicists, Geologists, Reservoir Engineers, Production Engineers, Professionals with MBA (Economics degree with PE Background)
