PhD Project

In tackling climate change, Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology is considered as one of the most important options for reducing CO2 and decreasing global warming. CO2 storage in porous sedimentary formations is widely employed for this purpose and reservoir-scale numerical studies are used for predictive investigations of this exercise. Among the geological options for CO2 storage, water-bearing saline formations are considered as the most promising due to their large storage capacity, globally. These formations are mainly heterogeneous and constitute variations in the hydraulic conductivity of sub-surface fluid, i.e. CO2 gas and salt water (brine). My PhD project investigates various pore-scale uncertainties in subsurface CO2-brine fluid flow at the reservoir-scale. This is done by relating sedimentary processes and structures to the constitutive functions of relative permeability and capillary pressure.
