Abstract

In recent years, significant research has been carried out across disciplines on the behaviour of CO2 in the subsurface geological formations, however, the mitigation of potential leakages from the storage reservoir through a fractured caprock, abandoned and unaccounted wells or any other form of non conformal CO2 flow has not been fully investigated yet. The current work fills this crucial
knowledge gap and illustrates a methodology for the mitigation of on-conformal flow of CO2 (including leakage from host reservoir into surrounding aquifers) in subsurface reservoirs. This paper presents a detailed laboratory investigation and numerical simulation studies of leakage
remediation scenarios for the use of a polymer-gel system to control non conformal flow of CO2 in the subsurface.
