Pore-scale modelling of CO2-brine flow properties at In Salah, Algeria

1st September 2010

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

This paper describes an integrated pore-scale modelling approach to reconstruct three reservoir rock samples from Krechba field at the In Salah geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) project in Algeria. Pore scale modelling is an important new tool that includes rock modelling, calculation of petrophysical properties, 2-phase fluid flow simulations and comparison of predicted results with laboratory data. This method of fast and reliable characterisation plays a critical role in CO2 storage modelling by shifting the saturation range for which the CO2 plume is mobile.
