About the Challenge

The MINUS CO2 Challenge

The world is changing – and the challenge of climate change is impacting the oil and gas business in many ways. As with other EAGE field challenges, we focus on a real dataset bringing practical experience to help students with successful careers in applied geosciences. In the MINUS CO2, we challenge teams to prepare a  project with zero net emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere. Any form of CO2 management may be used  (e.g. CO2 capture, CO2 storage, CO2 EOR, or renewable energy options. 

We invite university teams of three to five students to apply to take part in this innovative challenge, which has also received generous support from EAGE Green Fund and Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia.

Every team that applies will receive a dataset to work with. In the 2023 edition, participants had the opportunity to analyze the dataset of a carbon sequestration project. Out of all teams, the three best presented their project plan.

The Minus CO2 Challenge 2024 is receiving registrations now!

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.
