UT Austin’s Center for Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering will host a prestigious International Program on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) this summer.
The intensive, week-long course covers the full chain of CCS, including technical information on capture technologies, storage site selection, capacity and modelling, wellbore integrity and transport, as well as other issues such as regulations, health and safety, and public communication.
UT Austin’s Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) played a critical role recently in the redesign of a floating offshore oil platform that is expected to make such platforms more efficient, safer, and better for the environment.
Some of the world’s leading experts on decentralized power grids gathered in Austin recently to review new research findings and discuss how emerging technologies may fundamentally alter how power is produced, transmitted and consumed in the future.
