CO2 PLUME MODELING:

A CO2 plume model is a reservoir simulation model that deals specifically with the dispersion of CO2 in the subsurface after injection

  • • Storage sites for CO2 are often complex and heterogeneous, requiring detailed mapping of formation members and structure
  • • Pressure modeling is important when understanding how CO2 will disperse across and percolate upward through the storage formation
  • • Injection modeling is important for optimization of CO2 sequestration projects, both from a well design and operational management perspective
