The Global Status of Carbon Capture & Storage & CO2-EOR
The Global CCS Institute is pleased to have held the first Venezuela specific webinar on Wednesday 18 December from 9:30-10:30am (Venezuelan Standard Time). This webinar series will be presented in Spanish, and is part of the Global CCS Institute’s capacity development program in the Americas.
The webinar will focused on ‘The Global Status of Carbon Capture & Storage & CO2-EOR’ and briefly touched on the potential role of EOR-CCS in the Venezuelan technical context. 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, is 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.
