Coupled non-isothermal, multiphase fluid flow, and geomechanical modeling of ground surface deformations and potential for induced micro-seismicity at the In Salah CO2 storage operation

1st September 2010

Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage, Engineering and project delivery

This paper presents the results of a modelling study to assess the effectiveness of long reach horizontal injection wells at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. The authors investigate monitoring techniques to evaluate the performance of a CO2-injection operation in relatively low permeability formations. And, they analyse simulation results in terms of injection-induced reservoir stress and the potential for injection-induced micro-earthquakes at Krechba.
