Flow and transport for CO2 storage – 29-30 October 2015

The Qatar Carbonates and Carbon Storage Research Centre at Imperial College London is pleased to host the UKCCSRC workshop: Flow and Transport for CO2 Storage. This meeting brings together researchers from academia and industry to present and discuss progress and challenges in our understanding of the migration and trapping of CO2 injected deep underground. The international program will include presentations on: the development and prediction and modelling using theoretical fluid dynamics, numerics, and commercial reservoir simulation – Observations of CO2 flow and trapping at the pore, rock core, and field scales – perspectives from industry on CO2 storage projects currently in development.
