Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

This webinar aims to enhance knowledge sharing, dissemination and interaction among various technical disciplines involved in CCS project planning. Key areas of focus include total systems planning from emitter to the subsurface interfaces, flow assurance challenges, operations planning, and the resources available from the CCUS Technical Section about CCUS projects currently in operation or development and the Storage Resources Management System (SRMS).

The expert panel will cover practical aspects of CCUS Project planning for the P&F community. Each speaker will provide a high-level introduction to a subtopic followed by a 30 minute interactive Q&A session. Speakers will cover the safe and efficient operation of large-scale CCS projects collecting from multiple CO2 emitters (Dr. Dale Erickson), lessons learned from the global CCS industry and present the CCS engineer concept (Matthew Healey), and classifying and categorizing storable quantities using SPE’s Storage Resources Management System (Scott M. Frailey). All content contained within this webinar is copyrighted by Dale Erickson and Scott M.

Amir AlWazzanDr. Amir Alwazzan is the Production Assurance Manager for Technology & Innovation of Dragon Oil (a Member of ENOC Group). Prior to joining Dragon Oil in April 2015, he was the Flow Assurance Advisor with OneSubsea (a Cameron-Schlumberger company) based in Houston, TX, USA. He also worked for Schlumberger, McDermott Subsea, AMEC-Paragon and some other international companies, universities and institutions in different locations worldwide. During his 34 years of corporate, managerial and technical experience, Dr. Alwazzan has been involved in offshore and onshore projects in the USA, Canada, Middle East, Southeast Asia, North & West Africa and in the Caspian Sea regions at different capacities. He has authored and co-authored several technical papers and has been serving as a reviewer for three (3) peer-review international journals in the field of Petroleum Engineering, Science and Technology.

Dr. Alwazzan is a Chartered Petroleum Engineer accredited by the UK’s Engineering Council and Energy Institute and a registered EUR-ING with FEANI. He holds a PhD degree in Transient Multiphase Flow in Flowlines from the University of Malaya, Malaysia and MSc and BSc in Petroleum Engineering from Baghdad University, Iraq. Dr. Alwazzan is a member of the SPE’s JPT Editorial Review Board, Distinguished Lecturer Committee and the Production & Facilities Advisory Committee.
Dale EricksonDr. Dale Erickson serves as the Technical Authority and Technology Development Lead for Wood Group’s Digital Consulting Division. At Wood, he has pioneered the development of real-time, transient, multiphase flow simulators, leak detection systems, and control/optimization software for platforms/pipelines and wrote most of the core code for the multiphase pipeline simulator. In addition, he has been involved in numerous technical studies involving transient multiphase flow and dynamic process modelling. Since 1996, has had a significant role in over 100 projects, by providing functional design, detailed design approval, trouble shooting, tuning, quality review and testing and technical supervision. He first worked in the area of flow assurance by writing the first version of the Colorado School of Mines Hydrate program in 1983; then developed high accuracy Equations of State (EOS) in conjunction with NIST in Boulder, Colorado, for things like CO2 in the Critical Region, while getting his PhD from Rice University. He co-developed a thermal soil model enhancement and a bundle model enhancement for OLGA and developed the first commercial model for paraffin formation. He has recently developed a model of Oil Shale Well Operation, including a simplified Reservoir Model. His recent project deployments included a real-time on-line model for the largest CO2 Storage Network currently in operations.
Scott M. FraileyScott Frailey is a reservoir engineer for the Illinois Geologic Survey, where he is involved with the technical aspects of the CO2 storage and CO2 EOR programs and provides technical expertise in the areas of reservoir characterization and engineering including pressure transient analyses, core analyses, well log analyses, and reservoir modeling. Scott chairs the SPE CO2 Storage Resources Committee that oversees the Storage Resources Management System (SRMS) and SRMS Guidelines. Previously, Scott was an associate professor of petroleum engineering at Texas Tech University and a reservoir engineer at BP Exploration (Alaska). He graduated from the University of Missouri-Rolla with B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in petroleum engineering. He is a registered professional engineer in Texas, New Mexico, Illinois, and Indiana, and member of the SPWLA and SPE.
