A major challenge of CO2 injection into saline aquifers is the risk of formation clogging due to salt precipitation. Capillary-driven flow of brine can provide a continuous transport of dissolved salt toward the dry zone around the injection well where it ultimately precipitates due to evaporation. In this study, core flooding experiments were...

This research concerns the geological storage of CO2 and in particular injectivity impairment problems related to salt precipitation. Drying and salt precipitation in geological formations can have serious consequences for upstream operations in terms of injectivity and productivity. This can negatively affect the performance of injection and...

Drying and salt precipitation in geological formations can have serious consequences for upstream operations in terms of injectivity and productivity. Here we investigate the consequences of supercritical CO2 injection in sandstones. The reported findings are directly relevant for CO2 sequestration and acid–gas injection operations, but might...
