Technical Communities

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

The EAGE Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) community is the network of members interested in sharing knowledge and developing skills among geoscientists and engineers crossing paths with CCS. Our key focus points encompass all actions (lab research, site characterization, tech innovation, regulations, etc) enabling greater, faster, and safer CO2 geological storage for achieving negative emissions.

Following this line, the group will deal with CO2 storage site selection, development and optimization; subsurface monitoring; drilling and well integrity; derisking (safe operations); transparency for the public, and other related topics.

This community is open to members in all stages of their career.

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is the technical community for everyone interested in enabling carbon dioxide storage and utilization in our path to global Net Zero. We'll share our knowledge (geoscience, engineering, policy…), create a hub for all related skills, and endeavour to become a key network to shape and influence this critical pillar of climate actions.”

CCS Activities

  1. Offshore CCS: a North Sea Perspective (Wednesday 12 June – 14:30 CEST).
  2. Participation at the session Decarbonisation and Energy Transition (Thursday, 13 June – 14:30 CEST)

Skills for the Energy Transition

Willing to pursue a career in energy transition-related fields? Representatives from the EAGE Decarbonization and Energy Transition Communities, in collaboration with the Education Committee, have undertaken the development of a tool aimed at delineating the requisite skills for successfully navigating a career in the evolving energy landscape.

The overarching objective of the initiative is to offer a comprehensive learning path, encompassing both technical and non-technical proficiencies, thereby aiding our members in navigating their personal energy transition journeys.

In order to ensure that the insights provided by this tool align closely with the needs of our members, we would like to invite you to participate in a short survey: replies are anonymous and will help us improve the skills mapping as well as identify additional areas where geoscientists and engineers can play a role for the energy transition.

CCS Committee

The CCS community is coordinated by a Committee that serves for a period of two years. The current Committee is serving the 2024 – 2026 term.

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
