IEAGHG were invited by ITB, one of our Executive Committee Members, to run a short course on CCUS for high-level executives and government representatives from Indonesia on the 19th August 2021. This short course was held as a pre-convention event for the Indonesian Petroleum Association (IPA), prior to its 45th annual convention and exhibition which will take place from the 1st to 3rd September. The aim of this 3.5 hour event was to give an insight into CCUS and provide attendees with valuable lessons to help them make decisions at and following the main convention.This event was led and moderated by IEAGHG, with experts from the Summer School lecturer pool contributing to the technical lessons.
The topics covered during this short course included a welcome to the IEAGHG programme, a brief overview of the CCUS value chain; technical learnings for the storage of CO2; monitoring and verification of CO2; CCUS activities in Indonesia; international policy, legal and regulatory frameworks; and upstream-linked CCUS activities in the Asia Pacific region.
It was a fantastic opportunity for IEAGHG to be invited by the IPA to run this course and the event was extremely well received by all 45 attendees. IEAGHG would like to thank IPA for the invite and express our gratitude to our speakers who contributed to the event: John Kaldi (CO2CRC), Katherine Romanak (BEG at the University of Texas at Austin), Rachmat Sule (ITB), Antonio Dimabuyu (IHS Markit), and Tim Dixon (IEAGHG).
