ERE5.4Geological CO2 storage: Field methods and analysis of field data from sites and natural analogues
|Convener: Sonja Martens | Co-Conveners: Fritjof Fagerlund , Stefan Lüth , Stuart Gilfillan , Valentina Romano|
This session addresses field testing methods, analysis of field data and natural analogues of CO2 storage, for the purpose of robust site characterization and monitoring of CO2 storage sites. Presentations are invited to cover various aspects to field testing and natural analogues, including advances in measurement techniques and their application, advances in associated process understanding, in both test site and natural CO2 reservoirs and the role of modelling in assessing the characteristics and its spatial variability of storage sites.
Issues of importance include:
• Regional and local characterization of storage formations and their behaviour during CO2 injection and storage.
• Identification and determination of key site parameters for CO2 storage, such as parameter for trapping.
• Characterization of the cap-rock and its properties.
Suitable contributions can address, but are not limited to:
• Field testing and experimental approaches aimed at characterizing the site, its key characteristics and the behaviour of the injected CO2.
• Modelling studies for test design and analyses.
• Studies of natural analogue sites and lessons learnt from them for site characterisation and monitoring techniques.
Both case studies from specific sites as well as more generic studies and natural analogue studies addressing the fundamental issues of testing methodology and associated data interpretation are welcome.
