H51M:
Subsurface Control of Fractures and Flow for Responsible Energy Production and Storage Posters


Session ID#: 8831

Session Description:
Adaptive control of subsurface fractures and flow is a grand scientific challenge that has the potential to transform subsurface energy strategies and is critical for the safe production of unconventional hydrocarbons, enhanced geothermal energy, carbon sequestration and disposal of wastes. To transform the utilization of the subsurface for energy purposes, the U.S. Department of Energy  has advanced an initiative called SubTER (subsurface technology and engineering research development and demonstration) focused on the fracture and flow control grand challenge. We solicit contributions on several topics relative to this challenge, including enhanced wellbore integrity; measuring and manipulating subsurface stress and induced seismicity; fracture and permeability manipulation approaches;  new subsurface signals and monitoring strategies; development and use of energy field observatories and ‘fit for purpose’ simulation capabilities.
