H41C:
New Perspectives on CO2 Flow, Transport, and Long-Term Storage in Subsurface Reservoirs I Posters


Session ID#: 9747

Session Description:
The flow, transport, and reaction of CO2 in subsurface formations is only partially understood. Existing knowledge/scientific gaps are evident from discrepancies between laboratory experiments, field scale observations and modeling results. Understanding the coupling of hydrological and geochemical processes is key to reliably predicting the fate, transport, and trapping of CO2 injected in deep subsurface formations. This session invites presentations that introduce new progress, perspectives, and developments that address knowledge gaps at the molecular, interfacial, pore, and continuum scales (including upscaling) affecting CO2 flow, transport and long-term storage. Topics can include recent advances in understanding equations of state, multiphase flow and mixing, interfacial phenomena (wettability and dynamic interfacial jumps), reservoir properties and heterogeneities (geochemical and mineralogical), pore structure transformations, caprocks (characterization, integrity, leakage through fractures), and characterization and transformation of well-bore cements under reservoir conditions. We especially welcome multi-faceted efforts that combine numerical, experimental, imaging, and field-scale investigations.
