Geomodeler Intern - Application of structural modeling technology to carbon sequestration. Case study and content. (5-6 months)
We are Schlumberger, the leading provider of technology and services to the energy industry. Throughout much of the oil and gas lifecycle in over 120 countries; we design, develop, and deliver technology and services that transforms how work is done.
We define the boundaries of the industry by unleashing our talented people’s energy. We’re looking for innovators to join our diverse community of colleagues and develop new solutions and push the limits of what’s possible. If you share our passion for discovery and want to find out what you could really do, then here is the place to do it.
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) represents a key technology to abate carbon emissions in a number of industrial settings. It has the potential to play a significant role in limiting global warming. The characterization of subsurface storage sites is critical to ensure safe and cost-efficient injectivity.
One component of this workflow is the 3D static geological modeling, where several parallels to workflows deployed for oil and gas production lie. Such work will support both site identification and complement planning following the sanction of projects. Regulations will require detailed subsurface studies over long time horizons; building an accurate subsurface representation, fit-for-purpose, to support that will ensure safe and reliable operations.
Structural modeling tasks are complemented with additional workflows that extend the analysis. For example, fracture system characterization and fault and seal integrity may play an important role in some target storage locations. Those workflows are very connected to the resulting model. This provides an opportunity to differentiate by deploying those using the advanced modeling solutions implemented by the Montpellier Technology Center team.
Essential Responsibilities and Duties:
The subject of this internship is the application of Petrel Structural Modeling technology to CCS. The carbon storage characterization workflow will first be explored using a public dataset. The value of existing tools and possible technology gaps will be highlighted. The next step will be the creation of training content based on the case study, including the preparation of a training dataset and associated learning material.
