The CCS TLM Academy
In September 2011, CCS TLM signed a MoU with Nottingham Centre for Carbon Capture and Storage (NCCCS) to launch an Academy to offer training courses in the CCS arena.
The Academy was created to offer a series of short training courses aimed at improving knowledge and understanding of the CCS business across all CCS stakeholders. The courses are designed to give delegates access to the CCS TLM team with its extensive experience and capabilities in the technical, commercial and financing aspects of large-scale fully integrated CCS projects combined with the NCCCS which brings together the expertise and talents of two prestigious and highly respected institutions: the Carbon Dioxide Storage group of the British Geological Survey and the University of Nottingham.
Who are we?
CCS TLM is a company founded in 2010 by a group of ex-BP / Hydrogen Energy executives. The founders include individuals who were personally responsible for creating the Hydrogen Energy JV and for managing individual projects within the Hydrogen Energy portfolio.
This experience of screening opportunities around the world, identifying potential storage options and developing the concepts into financeable and executable projects is now available through CCS TLM. This is a unique set of experience. No other consulting firm can offer the technical and commercial insights of developing real industrial scale CCS projects.
In April 2011 CCS TLM became a Joint Venture with Tractebel Engineering, the engineering division of the GDF SUEZ group. This Joint Venture has created an entity with the real CCS project experience of the founders plus the engineering strength of a world-class engineering organization.
The Nottingham Centre for CCS (NCCCS) is a collaborative research and training institution co-established by the BGS and the UoN which brings together over 50 engineers, geologists, mathematicians, bio-scientists, geographers and social scientists to develop a holistic view of the development of CCS technology. It provides impartial advice to government, industry and academia, and works with international energy policy advisors, government organisations, universities and other research centres.
The British Geological Survey (BGS) is recognised as a European centre of excellence for the study of CO2 storage. It co-ordinated the ground-breaking Joule 2 project in the mid-1990s and since then has taken a leading research role in geological storage and monitoring of CO2 storage. BGS also provide advice to the UK Government in developing the UK legislative framework for CO2 storage, and provided official geological storage advisor to the DECC CCS competition. In the last two years BGS has carried out more than 50 CO2 storage projects for a range of customers, including the EU, industry and the UK and overseas governments. These include site characterisation, storage capacity estimation, performance assessment and site monitoring design. BGS also supplied a lead Author to the IPCC Special Report on Carbon Dioxide Capture and the IPCC Guidelines for Compiling National Greenhouse Gas Inventories.
The University of Nottingham (UoN) is a world-class university ranked in the top 10 universities in the UK, top 30 in Europe and top 1% of universities worldwide. It's Department of Engineeringis rated in the top 5 in Europe. The UoN is an international leader in research at the interface between science and engineering and cooperation to accelerate the technological innovation needed for the wider deployment of CCS.
We are very excited at the prospect of delivering training courses across the UK, continental Europe, Middle East and all other key CCS geographies across the globe. The CCS TLM Academy is a natural progression of our through life service giving clients access to a unique training offer for managers and engineers involved in the strategy, planning and execution of projects."
CCS Training Courses
CCS TLM, with its partnership with NCCCS, and along with our relationships with Dr Bryan Lovell and AGR TRACS, are able to provide exclusive carbon, capture and storage training courses.
Below are details of our current courses, however bespoke training can be provided for any size of class, at any venue, according to your requirements.
We value your feedback to help us deliver courses that suit your needs, please answer our brief questionnaire to help us to continue to do this.
A comprehensive introduction to the theoretical, practical and commercial aspects of the carbon capture and storage industry.
This course will follow the path of carbon from extraction from ancient rocks in the subsurface, through eager use by us, to capture and safe storage back in those same rocks. The course will cover all aspects of the CCS chain, but will explore in more detail the storage elements using the nearby marvels of the Jurassic coast of England along with a case study for the delegates to complete over the duration of the three days.
The content of the course will be as follows:
However, the CCS TLM Academy is able to offer bespoke customised courses to any number of people, at any venue, for any level required.
These courses are also supported by Dr Bryan Lovell OBE, Senior Research Fellow in Earth Sciences, University of Cambridge
The CCS TLM Academy is an ideal (independent) platform to deliver Public Outreach programs on behalf of projects and/or their individual proponents.
