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 oilfield dataset bringing practical experience to help students with successful careers in applied geosciences. The MINUS CO2 CHALLENGE is the same but different – we challenge teams to use a subsurface hydrocarbon resource but with zero net emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere. Any form of CO2 management may be used in association with the hydrocarbon resource model (e.g. CO2 capture, CO2 storage, CO2 EOR, or renewable energy options.
We invite university teams of three to five students to apply from to take part in this innovative challenge, which has also received generous support from EAGE Green Fund.
Every team that applies will receive a dataset to work with. They will have the opportunity to analyze the dataset and propose a low-carbon field development plan of a discovered hydrocarbon resource. Out of all teams, the best will be selected to present their development plan.
