Bentheimer sandstone is a quartz-rich permeable hard sedimentary rock used for core flooding experiments. When fired to stabilize clays (subjected to high temperatures), pyrometamorphical phase changes induce texture and pore framework alteration. As a consequence the new dielectric response may influence wettability. The literature regarding...

The wettability behavior of the matrix block is one of the major factors controlling the effectiveness of the employed EOR methods in NFRs. Water injection in NFRs with mixed-wet or effectively oil-wet matrix blocks usually results in low oil recoveries. In this case, gas injection is considered to be an alternative process, where the process...

In recent years, the coupled UCG-CCS process has been considered as another potential CCS option, which can offer integrated energy recovery from coal and storage of CO2. However, existing potential problems may counteract its potential benefits. To develop a generic UCG-CCS site characterisation workflow, different aspects of this complex...

For a water-saturated cap-rock, which consists of a low-permeability porous material, the wettability of the reservoir rock-connate water- CO2 system and the interfacial tension (IFT) between CO2 and connate water are the significant parameters for the evaluation of the capillary sealing. Also, the amount of capillary-trapped CO2 depends on the...

The growing concern about global warming has increased interest in improving the technology for the geological storage of CO2 in aquifers. One important aspect for aquifer storage is the rate of transfer between the overlying gas layer and the aquifer below. It is generally accepted that density driven natural convection is an important...

The TOPS project takes a radical and holistic approach to coupled UCG-CCS, and thus the site selection criteria for the coupled processes, considering both geological, reservoir and process engineering aspects and different end-uses of the produced synthetic gas in order to optimise the whole value chain. In particular, the experimental research...

Carbon dioxide injection, either miscible or immiscible, has been known as an efficient strategy to enhance oil recovery as well as reduce CO2 emission. Wettability has a significant effect on the performance of enhanced oil recovery techniques because of its effect on fluid saturation distribution and flow behavior in porous media. For oil-wet...

CO2 storage in deep saline aquifers and depleted gas reservoirs is largely controlled by interfacial phenomena among fluid phases and rock pore spaces. Reduction of the interfacial tension may result in the mobilization of connate water (capillary trapping). In addition, dissolving CO2 in formation water is one of the most important mechanisms...

Carbonated Water Flooding (CWF) is an alternative EOR method where an oil reservoir is flooded with carbonated (CO2-enriched) water. It is a promising solution for improving oil recovery that benefits from oil viscosity reduction, an increase in oil relative permeability and enhancement of oil mobility. At the same time CWF is a possible...

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has the potential for reducing CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. This option includes storage strategies such as CO2 injection into deep saline aquifers, depleted oil and gas reservoirs, and unmineable coal seams. This process is largely controlled by the interactions between CO2, the reservoir fluid and reservoir...

The injection of carbon dioxide (CO2) or flue gas into coal layers enhances the coal bed methane production (ECBM) and is also an option for CO2-storage. The success of this combined process depends strongly on the wetting behavior of the coal, which is a function of coal rank, ash content, pressure, temperature and composition of the gas. Two...

In this transition period from a fossil-fuel based society to a sustainable-energy society, it is expected that CO2 capture and subsequent sequestration in geological formations plays a major role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. An alternative for CO2 emission reduction is to partially replace conventional-energy for heating and cooling...

An improved version of the manometric apparatus and its procedures for measuring excess sorption of supercritical carbon dioxide are presented in detail with a comprehensive error analysis. An improved manometric apparatus is necessary for accurate excess sorption measurements with supercritical carbon dioxide due to the difficulties associated...

Scaled in situ laboratory core flooding experiments with CO2, N2 and flue gas were carried out on coal in an experimental high P,T device. These experiments will be able to give an insight into the design of the injection system, management, control of the operations and the efficiency of an ECBM project. Although the experience gained by the...

Time-lapse seismic monitoring is the geophysical discipline whereby multiple data sets recorded at the same location but at different times are used to locate and quantify temporal changes in the elastic parameters of the subsurface. We validate a time-lapse monitoring method by crosswell tomography using two types of wavefield-modeling...
