Recent Advances in CO2 Storage Science and Technology

  • Perlstein Hall Auditorium - Room 131 10 West 33rd Street Chicago, IL, 60616 United States (map)

While the fundamental scientific underpinnings of CO2 storage build on a century-long exploration of the physics of multiphase flow in porous media, there are aspects that remain unexplored and warrant further investigation. In this talk, Professor Benson will review recent experimental and theoretical research on multiphase flow of CO2 and brine in heterogeneous rocks, pore and continuum scale studies of the stability of residually trapped CO2, and monitoring of CO2 migration using pressure transient data. The implications of the findings from advances in CO2 storage science will be discussed for realworld projects.
