Engineering geology for geo-energy

CIVIL-428

Lecturer(s) :

Language:

English

Summary

Objective is to provide an understanding of the problems in geo-energy projects. Human induced fracturing has serious consequences in projects as conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon resources exploration, deep geothermal systems, CO2 storage and deep geological disposal of radioactive waste.

Content

We propose the following course outline:

Keywords

structural geology, tectonics, natural and induced seiscimicity, stress measurements, borehole stability, hydraulic fracturing, deep geothermal systems, CO2 sequestration

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Soil mechanics, Geomechanics, Rock mechanics

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods
