PetroSkills Tech Tuesdays

PetroSkills is committed to providing our industry with valuable knowledge through a variety of options. In addition to public and in-house face-to-face training, virtual courses, e-learning, and simulation courses, we are proud to offer technical webinars free of charge.

Each Tuesday for the length of the series, PetroSkills will conduct a live webinar on a different technical topic. Attendees may attend live, or view the recording on-demand afterward. Make sure and check this list again in the future, as we are frequently adding new topics.


CO2 Capture: What is it and how would I do it?

Presented by Karl Gerdes

Tuesday, December 15th, 10:00 am CST (GMT-6:00)


This webinar provides a brief overview of the emerging field of CO2 capture from stationary industrial sources - primarily combustion operations. CO2 capture is part of the so-called “CCUS” chain – CO2 Capture, Utilization and Storage – where the basic concept is to prevent the release of CO2 to the atmosphere by de-carbonizing fossil fuels prior to use or by separating CO2 from effluents and recycling it for utilization, or “permanently” storing CO2 in subsurface formations. CCUS is viewed as a key component of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions reduction by IEA, as part of a long-term migration to sustainable energy systems.   

The main technical approaches used for CO2 capture will be reviewed, along applicability. Some approaches are suitable to retrofits. A specific example of CO2 capture on an industrial source – a steam methane reformer – is described. Finally, several operating commercial-scale CO2 capture projects are examined.  More Information
