Abstract – Human influence in warming the atmosphere, ocean and land is a function of increasing Green House Gases (GHG) from human activity in the atmosphere since 1750. This is the climate change! CO2 and CH4 are the most important GHG (not only, nitrous oxide, perfluorocarbons, etc..). Capture and geological storage of CO2 is a proven technology to assist industries and power plants in the energy transition. High amounts of CO2 could be captured and permanently stored underground. Gas storage of methane is a known technology being operated for more than 100 years. Regarding CO2 storage, the workflow for site characterization is very similar but includes the collection of new data such as geochemical and geomechanical data. Risk assessment and monitoring are other mandatories studies in geological storage of CO2.

Lecturer – Fernanda de Mesquita Lobo Veloso

Fernanda is a reservoir geologist at Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières (BRGM, the French Geological Survey). She is project coordinator for two
H2020 projects: PilotSTRATEGY and STRATEGY CCUS. Before she joined the BRGM and completed her PhD in Spain about geological and reservoir modelling
for studies of CO2 storage, Fernanda spent almost five years at Total, an international oil and gas company, where she worked as a wellsite geologist and as
a researcher studying the behavior of seal rocks in high temperature and high pressure conditions.

Current Position – Researcher at Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières, France
