0 out of 5

This book offers readers a comprehensive overview and an in-depth understanding of suitable methods for quantifying and characterizing saline aquifers for the geological storage of CO2 It begins with a general overview of the methodology and the processes that take place when CO2 is injected and stored in deep saline-water-containing formations It subsequently presents mathematical and numerical models used for predicting the consequences of CO2 injection This book provides descriptions of relevant experimental methods from laboratory experiments to field scale site characterization and techniques for monitoring spreading of the injected CO2 within the formation Experiences from a number of important field injection projects are reviewed as are those from CO2 natural analog sites Lastly the book presents relevant risk management methods Geological storage of CO2 is widely considered to be a key technology capable of substantially reducing the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere thereby reducing the negative impacts of such releases on the global climate Around the world projects are already in full swing while others are now being initiated and executed to demonstrate the technology Deep saline formations are the geological formations considered to hold the highest storage potential due to their abundance worldwide To date however these formations have been relatively poorly characterized due to their low economic value Accordingly the processes involved in injecting and storing CO2 in such formations still need to be better quantified and methods for characterizing modeling and monitoring this type of CO2 storage in such formations must be rapidly developed and refinedGeological Storage of CO2 in Deep Saline Formations EbookBy Auli Niemi Publisher Springer Print ISBN 9789402409949 9402409947 eText ISBN 9789402409963 9402409963 Copyright year 2017 Format PDF Available from 18900 USD SKU 9789402409963
