30th Sept 2020 SPE WA Reducing Net Carbon Footprint Webinar: CO2 storage experiences in carbonates
September 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree – $10
SPE WA are proud to present the details of our live webinar on Reducing Net Carbon Footprint titled “CO2 storage experiences in carbonates” presented by Dr. J. Carlos de Dios!
Note that once you register on the website, a separate email will be sent to you which has a link that takes you to the webinar specific entry gateway the day before the webinar.
About the Presentation
Most of CO2 geological storage projects worldwide correspond to sandstones in porous media. Carbonate study cases are less common, and usually show a double permeability (i.e porous matrix and fractures) because of their petrophysical properties. The existence of a primary and secondary porosity conditions the hydraulic behaviour of these reservoirs and CO2 plume evolution. The injection also impacts on the petrophysical properties due to mechanical effects and the reactivity of the mixture CO2+resident brine with the carbonated matrix and fracture fillings. Experiences on CO2 injection at Hontomín Technology Development Plant (Spain), a naturally fractured carbonate reservoir, are showed in the presentation.
