The course considers physical mechanisms of stabilisation of injected CO2, as well as potential geological migration pathways within or outside of the storage complex. Identification and systematic assessment of the relative likelihood of CO2 migration along various pathways is discussed, including seal capacity, spill points, fault seal and conductivity, induced fault slip or fracturing, displacement of reservoir fluids and pressure interference. Implications for review of potential impacts (e.g., the “area of review”) are considered.
Further modules consider design of an integrated, cost-effective monitoring programme to address site-specific subsurface and well CO2 containment risks, including surveillance of reservoir performance, well integrity, potential subsurface CO2 migration and pooling in secondary reservoirs, as well as surface releases. Technologies for monitoring in wells and remotely via surface surveys are discussed, with examples of performance in existing CO2 storage projects.
The course concludes with technology selection and strategies for cost-effective storage monitoring.
