Abstract

This paper recall the Compositional Dual Mesh Method, an extension to the concept of dual mesh for reactive transport modeling. This approach involves two meshes, a low-resolution mesh to resolve the pressure equation and a high-resolution mesh to transport the species and to calculate the geochemical equilibrium. Geochemical equilibrium being very sensitive to the concentration, preserving the fine heterogeneities leads to a more accurate field behavior simulation than conventional approach which consist in performing simulations on a coarser mesh. The method is applied to a simulation of CO2 storage in a geological model representing a fluvial deposit with a complex realistic architecture that keep a high resolution of the heterogeneities.
