In Salah CO2 storage JIP: carbon dioxide plume extension around KB-502 well. New insights into reservoir behaviour at the In Salah storage site
1st September 2010
This paper presents information by the Joint Industry Project established to monitor CO2 storage at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. Satellite-based interferometry (InSAR) technology detected surface uplift over all three horizontal CO2 injection wells shortly after the start of CO2 injection. Imperial College London carried out simulations of CO2 injection aiming to gain a better understanding of the reservoir behaviour. The findings are reported in this paper.
