Formatted Abstract/Summary
The level of confidence in sub-surface containment related to potential industrial-scale injection of carbon dioxide (CO2) is investigated in advance of applications for CO2 exploration tenements. Evidence for seal retention pressures is evaluated based on hydrocarbon accumulations and hydrostatic gradients. Fracture propagation and fault reactivation pressures are also scoped. Evidence for vertical migration through a proposed seal is investigated through oil shows analysis. Analyses are synthesized and compared to required pressure retention performance, indicated by dynamic modeling, to give an overall view of pre-licensing, pre-drill containment confidence. The resultant uncertainty analysis is used to guide an exploration strategy.
