Methodologies and guidelines for selection of storage sites in saline aquifers

The Global CCS Institute was pleased to run the first of a three-part webinar series on CO2 storage on Wednesday 28th August 2013. This webinar series will be presented in Spanish, and is part of the Global CCS Institute’s capacity development program with the Mexican Academic Council of Earth Science Schools on the education of carbon capture and storage (CCS).

The first webinar focused on ‘Methodologies and guidelines for selection of storage sites in saline aquifers’. The Institute is pleased that Vanessa Nuñez, Research Scientist Associate at the Gulf Coast Carbon Center of the University of Texas at Austin’s Bureau of Economic Geology, will be presenting this webinar series.

Vanessa serves as Principal Investigator for several applied CCS projects. She holds a BS in Petroleum Engineering from Universidad Central de Venezuela, an MS in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and an MA in Energy and Mineral Resources also from the University of Texas at Austin. Before joining the Bureau of Economic Geology, Vanessa was a Senior Reservoir Engineer at Chevron Energy Technology’s Carbon Storage group, where she served as company representative for several Joint Industry Projects, such as the Weyburn-Midale IEA project. Back in her native Venezuela, she worked as an Instructor Professor at Universidad Central de Venezuela.

Parts two and three of this webinar series will be held later in 2013. Stay tuned for registration information.
