Recent Advances in Geophysical Reservoir Characterization and Monitoring of CO2 Sequestration in Carbonate Reservoirs


21–23 May 2024
Abu Dhabi, UAE

Unleash the potential of geophysics to propel the global transition toward cleaner and more sustainable energy sources.

This workshop is designed to offer a state-of-the-art understanding of the most recent developments in geophysical techniques for the effective characterization and monitoring of CO2 sequestration within carbonate formations. Furthermore, our workshop will delve into the latest innovations aimed at addressing the unique challenges that may arise in geophysical monitoring during carbon capture within carbonate reservoirs. Participants can anticipate engaging with the most up-to-date research findings, case studies, and projects related to geophysical reservoir characterization and CO2 sequestration monitoring in carbonate formations. These insights will exemplify the practical applications of these innovative technologies.
