The goal of the CO2 Geological Storage program at the Sapienza University of Rome is to provide the participants with the scientific and technical knowledge that needs to be addressed for the successful storage of CO2 into geological formations. 


The CO2 Geological Storage program at the Sapienza University of Rome will cover all aspects of the geological storage of CO2 so that the students can both understand the work of all specialists who will be involved in CCS projects (such as reservoir engineers/geologists, sedimentologists, stratigraphers, geophysicists, structural geologists, geochemical modellers, regulators, etc.) and further develop their own field of specialization. 

Program Overview

The program will present an overview of the state-of-the-art of CCS operations and research; it will focus on the technical and scientific knowledge acquired in the European pilot sites (including the ones from ENOS project) for CO2 injection and safety monitoring, the exploration of critical processes in laboratory studies, and numerical modelling.
