Multiscale Characterisation of CO2 Storage in the United Kingdom

Project overview

We combine pore scale digital rock physics, reservoir condition special core analysis, and reservoir simulation to evaluate the performance of CO2 storage for the major target storage regions of the UK.

Key objectives:

  • Develop a dataset of relative permeability and residual trapping for major storage targets in the UK (Fig. 1), obtained experimentally at reservoir conditions
  • Identify the contribution of pore scale rock morphology to multiphase flow dynamics and dissolution trapping
  • Use the data in reservoir simulations to update dynamic capacity estimation for UK reservoirs
