Application of semi-analytical multiphase flow models for the simulation and optimization of geological carbon sequestration
Geological carbon sequestration (GCS) has been identified as having the potential to reduce increasing atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2). However, a global impact will only be achieved if GCS is cost effectively and safely implemented on a massive scale. This work presents a computationally efficient methodology for identifying optimal injection strategies at candidate GCS sites having caprock permeability uncertainty. A multi-objective evolutionary algorithm is used to heuristically determine non-dominated solutions between the following two competing objectives: 1) maximize ...
