Geological storage of carbon dioxide education course

Storage Courses

This topic provides the principles behind geological storage of carbon dioxide and covers the location of suitable sites, the behaviour of carbon dioxide in storage, operational issues, monitoring and verification, and carbon dioxide projects around the world.

CCUS Courses


8.30am – 5.00pm (AEST) 

Seats are limited to 30 to give the best experience to the attendees 

Courses will be run every two (2) months 

Next available date: TBD

Course structure

  • Distinguish between reservoir rocks and sealing rocks
  • Describe the importance of permeability and porosity to storing carbon dioxide
  • Contrast the geological structures and trapping mechanisms for storing carbon
  • Describe the changes in geologically stored carbon dioxide over time
  • Outline the monitoring techniques employed to ensure the carbon dioxide is safely


  • Eight (8) hours of visual and verbal learning, facilitated by an industry expert
