Foam is utilized in enhanced oil recovery and CO<sub>2</sub> sequestration. Surfactant-alternating-gas (SAG) is a preferred approach for placing foam into reservoirs, due to it enhances gas injection and minimizes corrosion in facilities. Our previous studies with similar permeability cores show that during SAG injection, several banks occupy...

The study aims to quantitatively assess the risk of hydrate formation within the porous formation and its consequences to injectivity during storage of CO<sub>2</sub> in depleted gas reservoirs considering low temperatures caused by the Joule Thomson (JT) effect and hydrate kinetics. The aim was to understand which mechanisms can mitigate or...

Foam is a promising means to assist in the permanent, safe subsurface sequestration of CO<sub>2</sub>, whether in aquifers or as part of an enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) process. Here we review the advantages demonstrated for foam that would assist CO<sub>2</sub> sequestration, in particular sweep efficiency and residual trapping, and the...

Injection of high-pressure CO2 into depleted gas reservoirs can lead to low temperatures promoting formation of hydrate in the near wellbore area resulting in reduced injection rates. The design of effective mitigation methods requires an understanding of the impact of crucial parameters on the formation and dissociation of CO2 hydrate within...

Carbon dioxide capture and storage in subsurface geological formations is a potential solution to limit anthropogenic CO<sub>2</sub> emissions and combat global warming. Depleted gas fields offer significant CO<sub>2</sub> storage volumes; however, injection of CO<sub>2</sub> into these reservoirs poses some potential challenges for the...

Depleted gas reservoirs are attractive sites for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) due to their huge storage capacities, proven seal integrity, existing infrastructure and subsurface data availability. However, CO<sub>2</sub> injection into depleted formations can potentially lead to hydrate formation near the wellbore due to Joule-Thomson...

Hypothesis: Underground hydrogen storage in depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs and aquifers has been proposed as a potential long-term solution to storing intermittently produced renewable electricity, as the subsurface formations provide secure and large storage space. Various phenomena can lead to hydrogen loss in subsurface systems with the...

Characterizing the wettability of hydrogen (H<sub>2</sub>)–methane (CH<sub>4</sub>) mixtures in subsurface reservoirs is the first step towards understanding containment and transport properties for underground hydrogen storage (UHS). In this study, we investigate the static contact angles of H<sub>2</sub>–CH<sub>4</sub> mixtures, in contact...

Production of mature oil fields emits significant amount of CO<sub>2</sub> related to circulation and handling of large volumes of gas and water. This can be reduced either by (1) using a low-carbon energy source and/or (2) reducing the volumes of the non-hydrocarbon produced/injected fluids. This paper describes how improved oil recovery...

Underground Hydrogen Storage (UHS) is an attractive technology for large-scale (TWh) renewable energy storage. To ensure the safety and efficiency of the UHS, it is crucial to quantify the H<sub>2</sub> interactions with the reservoir fluids and rocks across scales, including the micro scale. This paper reports the experimental measurements...

An understanding of how CO2 foam flows through a reservoir rock is useful for many subsurface applications, including enhanced oil recovery and CO2 storage. There are economic and environmental benefits in identifying surfactants that exhibit good foaming behavior with CO2 at both low concentrations and high foam qualities. Core flood...

This paper presents an assessment of the life-cycle exergetic efficiency and CO2 footprint of the underground biomethanation process. The subsurface formation, hosting microorganisms required for the reaction, is utilized to convert CO2 and green (produced from renewable energy) hydrogen to the so-called "green"or synthetic methane. The net...

The efficiency of oil processes depends on the product of volumetric sweep and microscopic sweep. In oil recovery by steam injection the microscopic sweep is generally good; however, obtaining a good volumetric sweep can be challenging. This is caused by low density and viscosity of the injected steam combined with the reservoir heterogeneity...

We develop a method based on concept of exergy-return on exergy-investment (ERoEI) to determine the energy efficiency and CO<sub>2</sub> footprint of polymer and surfactant enhanced oil recovery (EOR). This integrated approach considers main surface and subsurface elements of the chemical EOR methods. The main energy investment in oil...

This paper introduces new oil recovery mechanisms for oil recovery by polymer injection in heavy oil reservoirs with strong bottom aquifers. Due to unfavorable mobility ratio between aquifer water and oil and the development of the sharp cones significant amount of oil remains unswept. To overcome these issues, for the case demonstrated in...

Subsurface porous formations provide large capacities for underground hydrogen storage (UHS). Successful utilization of these porous reservoirs for UHS depends on accurate quantification of the hydrogen transport characteristics at continuum (macro) scale, specially in contact with other reservoir fluids.

Surfactant-alternating-gas (SAG) is a preferred method of foam injection, which is a promising means of enhanced oil recovery. Liquid injectivity in a SAG process is commonly problematic. Our previous studies suggest that the liquid injectivity can be better than expected due to the existence of a collapsed-foam region formed during the gas...
