Influence of formation heterogeneity on reservoir performance of CCS projects in saline formations

November 14, 2023 @ 4:45 pm - 7:30 pm

$40.00 – $70.00

Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our November 2023 SPE WA Technical Meeting.

About the Presentation

Potential saline formation targets for carbon dioxide disposal must meet containment criteria for project success. In the selection process, detailed reservoir characterisation of these formations should be undertaken to understand the impact of formation heterogeneity on containment of injected carbon dioxide. A reservoir simulation study was conducted to evaluate the impact of varying net-to-gross ratio, shale barrier length and formation dip on the subsurface behaviour of injected carbon dioxide in a hypothetical marine sand reservoir model. The study results showed that heterogeneity has a significant impact on the behaviour of the plume and can improve containment of injected carbon dioxide.
