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 2022 edition, participants will have the opportunity to analyze the dataset of a carbon sequestration project. Out of all teams, the three best will be selected to present their project plan.
