Abstract
Enhanced oil recovery through carbon dioxide injection (CO2-EOR) data has made it possible to estimate the CO2 geological storage in the oilfields of the Songliao Basin, northeastern China. The storage capacity of CO2 in oilfields was determined and the results show that the theoretical storage capacity of CO2 in the oilfields of the Songliao Basin is 2.36 × 109 t, and the effective storage capacity is 0.59 × 109 t with an effective coefficient of 0.25. Among the tectonic units, the central downwarp has the highest storage capacity of 2.17 × 109 t, which accounts for 91.8% of the total storage capacity. On the other hand, the western slope area has a storage capacity of 0.13 × 109 t, which accounts for only 5.6% of the total storage capacity. Thus, the central downwarp and western slope together comprise about 97.4% of the total storage capacity, and these areas could be selected as potential areas for CO2 geological storage in the oilfields of the Songliao Basin. Furthermore, the oilfields can be used as target formations to store CO2 for about 10 years as per the estimated effective storage capacity, and 40 years according to the theoretical storage capacity. Although, the uncertainty analysis of the parameters yielded the cursory estimated results of the CO2 storage capacity, the prospect selection for the CO2 sequestration in the oilfields of the Songliao Basin is feasible based on the assessment scale.

ABSTRACTA groundwater field is a complex and open system. Groundwater simulation and prediction often deviated from true values, which is attributed to the uncertainty of groundwater modeling. The conceptual model (model struture) is one of the main sources of groundwater modeling uncertianty. In this study, the mean Euclidean distance (MED) between model simulations and observations is proposed to assess the integrated likelihood value of a conceptual model in Bayesian model averaging (BMA).

Laboratory experiments and calculation of the dissolution constant were performed to investigate the physical property changes of sandstones in Korea resulting from the geochemical reaction of CO2 under sequestration conditions. To simulate the sub-surface storage condition (100 bar and 50 °C), the high pressurized stainless cell and chamber were used and the supercritical CO2 fluid was injected into the cell (or the chamber) by the syringe pump and the pressure regulator. Sandstone slabs and co...

The model covers the whole basin, and vertically consists of most of the Cretaceous strata. In a hypothetical scenario, a total of 1.43 GT CO 2 is injected into the Yaojia Formation (K 2 y) through 20 wells distributing at the center of the basin in 50 years (0.5–2 million tons per injection well per yea...

The probability distribution of groundwater model output is the direct product of modeling uncertainty. In this work, we aim to analyze the probability distribution of groundwater model outputs (groundwater level series and budget terms) based on sensitivity analysis. In addition, two sources of uncertainties are considered in this study: (1) the probability distribution of model’s input parameters; (2) the spatial position of observation point. Based on a synthetical groundwater model, the prob...

Geological storage of CO 2 in deep saline aquifers has become one of the most important methods of reducing the emission of anthropogenic greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. The assessment of potential CO 2 storage capacity is an important part of geological storage design. In this study, the potential CO 2 storage capacity in the deep saline aquifers of the Songliao Basin – a large sedimentary basin in northeastern China – was assessed on a basin scale. The study results showed that: (1) deep s...

SUMMARY An effective way of reducing greenhouse gas content in the atmosphere is carbon dioxide (CO2) geo-sequestration in saline aquifers. The main objective of this study is to develop a 3-D numerical model to identify the optimum CO2 storage capacity in saline aquifers by studying the factors affecting it and the possibility of the injected CO2 back-migrating into the atmosphere. A 1000m×1000m×184 m saline aquifer, lying 800 m below the ground surface, was therefore considered to develop a mo...

We analyzed 2-D seismic and well-log data from the southern Jeju Basin, offshore southern Korea, northern East China Sea to estimate the CO2 storage capacity of the structural traps in the area. Sand intervals with >10-m gross thickness were identified from the gamma-ray logs and their porosity was estimated from the neutron logs corrected for the shale effect. A total of 14 structural closures was delineated from the depth-converted maps of the sand intervals. Seismic inversion and multi-attrib...

The premise of the various marine controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) methods is sensitivity to the lateral extents and thicknesses of resistive bodies embedded in conductive hosts. Over the past decade, CSEM surveys have been characterized by arrays of fixed ocean bottom receivers and towed transmitters, and applied to de-risking exploration and appraisal projects with direct hydrocarbon indication. The most successful applications of CSEM to date have been in complement to those seismic i...

CO2 mineralization is a long-term and secure solution for geological CO2 storage that primarily depends on the CO2–brine–rock interaction during CO2 sequestration in subsurface formations. In this study, lab experiments were conducted to investigate the CO2–brine–rock interaction over short timescales, and numerical simulations were performed to reveal dynamic interactions and equilibrium interactions by applying TOUGHREACT and PHREEQC, respectively. In the experiments, the main ions of HCO3− an...

Low injectivity of sandstone geothermal reservoirs during reinjection of geothermal waste water is a problem generally encountered in China, and has become a main obstacle for sustainable development of the geothermal resources. Over the last few decades, researchers have made much efforts to solve it based on the studies of reinjection schemes, hydrogeology of the reservoirs, well completion, reinjection water disposal techniques, and water-rock interactions focused on precipitation/dissolution...

Because of unknown faults and fractures in the overlying rock, CO2 stored deep underground may move upward, and the intrusion may impact shallow groundwater quality. After leakage of CO2 has ceased, the affected aquifer may show remediation capacity under natural conditions and injections and extractions. In this study, the reactive transport modeling software TOUGHREACT was used to simulate the remediation capacity of a study aquifer. The simulation results show that the intrusion of leaked CO2...
