Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper reports the well design, drilling and completion operation as well as the coring technique applied in the CO2SINK project. Three boreholes, one injection well and two observation wells have been drilled to a total depth of about 800 m. 200 m of recovered 6" core material has been real-time analysed in a research field lab. The wells have been completed as "smart" wells, containing a variety of permanently installed down-hole sensors for the continuous monitoring of the CO2 in the reservoir. All wells were cased with stainless final casings equipped with pre-perforated sand filters in the reservoir zone and wired on the outside with fiber-optical and multi-conductor copper cables. The reservoir casing section is externally coated with a fiber-glass-resin wrap for electrical insulation.
