Relative permeability for multi-phase flow in CO2 storage reservoirs. Part II: resolving fundamental issues and filling data gaps
Relative permeability for multi-phase flow in CO2 storage reservoirs. Part II: resolving fundamental issues and filling data gaps

30th June 2015

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute, Stanford University

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Use and storage (CCUS)

This report, prepared for the Global CCS Institute by a consortium of research organisations led by Stanford University, presents an assessment of fundamental issues pertaining to the relative permeability of brine and carbon dioxide (CO2) systems. This research follows an earlier report published by the Institute in August 2013 which provided an overview of this topic and highlighted knowledge gaps.

Relative permeability is an important factor in determining the fate and transport of CO2 over the lifetime of a storage project. To date only limited information on this critical factor has been available, much of which is summarised in the 2013 report. This report addresses key gaps in knowledge and data related to CO2 storage in saline formations.

Relative permeability analysis to describe multi-phase flow in CO2 storage reservoirs
Relative permeability analysis to describe multi-phase flow in CO2 storage reservoirs

7th August 2013

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute, Imperial College London, Stanford University

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 storage, Use and storage (CCUS)

Relative permeability is one of the most important properties influencing the fate and movement of CO2 in the subsurface. It is a parameter that quantifies the extent to which the injected CO2 and water interfere with each other as they migrate through rocks. Relative permeability measurements are also used directly in all of the mathematical approaches for predicting and matching the fate and movement of CO2 in the subsurface. Consequently, accurate measurements for this important parameter are indispensable.
The purpose of this report is to provide an explanation of the different methods used to measure relative permeability and to provide an objective review of comparable methodologies. The report will also include the identification of data gaps and the requirements to obtain additional material to provide a complete library of relative permeability measurements in varying brine compositions and rock types to represent as complete a suite of potential storage sites as possible.
