Portfolio methodology for high level estimation of CO2 storage potential of saline aquifers

Eindverslag / master’s thesis van Cindy Dubbeld, stagiaire bij EBN. This study developed a methodology to quickly assess the CO2 storage potential of a portfolio of aquifers. The storage potential includes the in-situ storage capacity [Mt] and the injection rate at standard conditions [sm3/day].  This allows for fast screening among many aquifers in order to select potential aquifer candidates, which can be used to enhance future studies. For a simple and quick assessment a rule-of-thumb is constructed to estimate the storage potential.  This rule-of-thumb is based on the results of a numerical sensitivity study on geologically realistic aquifer parameters.
