Objectives

The overall objective of this work package is to analyze the far-field impacts of CO2 injection,
in particular

  • Estimate the evolution and impact of the large pressure plume caused by CO2 injection;
  • Estimate the evolution and impact of far-field brine migration, and possible consequences to adjacent freshwater aquifers;
  • Develop robust modeling approaches to analyze the above, and to analyze the effects of CO2 injection, possible CO2 leakage to the near-surface aquifers;
  • Investigate the impact of geo-chemical changes subsequent to the presence of leaked CO2 on the mobilization of hazardous minerals, otherwise trapped in the solid matrix.

Objectives

The general objective of this work package is to provide an integrative data and modeling platform for the quantitative assessment of the long-term performance of a CO2-storage reservoir. Based on quantitative information from process models as well as large-scale long-term information from analogue and injection sites studies we shall:

  • Provide a quantitative assessment of temporal and spatial mass flows at a regional i.e. reservoir scale for the prediction of plume spreading and brine displacement (UGOE, CSIC, UU, IIT, UEDIN)
  • Provide the theoretical and process oriented basis for the simulation of small (core) and large (borehole, reservoir) scale fluid flow and mass transport (CSIC, IIT, UU, UGOE)
  • Evaluate and use novel computational models, suggest measures to increase efficiency of simulations of key processes (CSIC, UU, IIT)
  • Investigate the effects of heterogeneity on storage efficiency and risk assessment in terms of coupled processes (CSIC, UEDIN).
  • Provide quantitative data for risk assessment (UU, UGOE, CSIC, IIT, UEDIN)

Provide spatial and temporal information for monitoring network design

Objectives

  • Evaluate the ability of the various monitoring technologies installed a Heletz and Hontomin.
  • Design build, install and cement at Maguelone of the new “RTSG” (Resistivity / Temperature/ Strain / Gas) down-hole monitoring instrument. Gas detection will be performed with direct measurement of CO2 from a new sensor based on Bragg’s grating technique attached to dedicated optical fibre devices.
  • Perform CO2 injection experiments at Maguelone to test the new RTSG down-hole instrument installed at 20 m depth and within 10 to 20 m of the injection hole, in the direction of the pumping hole.
  • Suggest MMV technologies suitable for implementation at the large scale CCS demonstration projects.

Objectives

  • Establish a platform for ensuring efficient and reliable flow of information and knowledge within the consortium during the project lifetime.
  • Develop a knowledge management system to be implemented at the initial stage of the project to facilitate and support the internal and external transfer of knowledge;
  • Disseminate results, findings and deliverables within the consortium and to targeted communities of scientists, engineers, regulators and the wider, by putting in place a solid and relevant structure for communicating and disseminating the project achievements.
  • Ensure adequate degree of communication and understanding at the level of the scientific community.
  • Create links and relations with R&D related projects, Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia.
  • Deliver clear, transparent and reliable information of the PANACEA findings in format to be adapted to different targeted audiences.
  • Contribute to the effort of public outreach and acceptance of CCS.
