Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to make students familiar with current nontraditional methods of utilization of deposits. On the basis of obtained input knowledge, to carry out the critical analysis of individual methods of utilization and to propose – with taking economic factors and impact of activity on the surrounding environment into account – a suitable methodology for the conditions of the region and the Czech Republic. Theoretical study will be then directed especially towards the possibilities of extracting coalbed methane from coal seams at simultaneous CO2 geosequestration and towards the problem of liquid waste disposal by boreholes into depleted hydrocarbon deposits. To use work with data and prognoses in further professional activities.
