Abstract

The main goal of the present project is to provide, at the different scales of interest, appropriate models for the accurate simulation of the hydrodynamic behaviour of CO2 storage in saline aquifer. By integrating heterogeneity of the geological formation both at the meso-scale and at large basin scale domain, the H- CUBE project intends to capture correctly and to improve the estimates of (i) the hydrodynamic impacts associated with CO2 storage operations (aquifer pressurization and induced brine displacements), (ii) the CO2 plume migration and (iii) the associated CO2 capacity storage performance. In this framework several innovative methods will be developed such as: -homogenization techniques to upscale physical processes -ranking techniques to reduce the number of realizations to be run in a full mode -multi mesh methods extended to compositional modelling combined with smart meshing techniques. A complete framework from field observation (digital outcrops models at the meter scale) to static geological models built at large aquifer-scale is proposed. Six case studies will be used to evaluate the performance of such investigations based on three relevant geological contexts: -Stratified shale heterogeneity in unconsolidated sandy aquifer (analogue: Sleipner); -Fluvial sediment deposit including slopping formations (analogue: Ketzin and ULCOS); -Carbonated aquifers (analogue: Weyburn and Paris basin).
