NOCS Open Day 2019

8 June 2019 - Southampton

Exhibitors: Dr Berit Lehrmann & Dr Ismael Himar Falcon-Suarez
We exhibited the experimental setup we use in the Rock Physics Laboratory (NOCS) for CO2 storage simulations at the laboratory scale. We explained to the audience how important is to characterize the main reservoir properties and monitor changes during and after the CO2 injection, to guaranty reservoir integrity. Basic geological concepts were first introduced to the audience, followed by a brief description of the ongoing CO2 storage projects in which the Marine Geosciences group is involved (GASRIP, STEMM-CCS and CHIMNEY).

NOCS Open Day 2018  

9 June 2018 - Southampton

Exhibitors: PhD candidate Andrea Muñoz Ibáñez & Dr Ismael Falcon-Suarez

We exhibited the experimental setup we use in the Rock Physics Laboratory (NOCS) for CO2 storage simulations at the laboratory scale. We explained to the audience how important is to characterize the main reservoir properties and monitor changes during and after the CO2 injection of CO2, to guaranty the stability of the geological system. Basic geological concepts were introduced to the audience, regarding the potential physico-chemical and mechanical effects that can take place in the reservoir as a result of CO2-brine-rock interaction. To this aim, we showed rock samples subjected to CO2-brine flow-through tests, together with their respective twin non-tested samples for comparison. Finally, we introduced the ongoing CO2 storage projects in which the Marine Geosciences group is involved (GASRIP, STEMM-CCS and CHIMNEY), emphasizing our work to improve the monitoring tools and methods for safe and secure CO2 storage activities.
