Greenhouse Gas and Unconventional Reservoirs

A request for proposals was issued on April 1, 2010 for Geologic Sequestration of Greenhouse Gases and Recovery of Unconventional Gas.

The focus of the research in fundamentals of multiphase flow in porous media is in two topic areas:

  • Sequestration of greenhouse gas and associated impurities (GGI) in geologic formations, e.g., deep saline aquifers and oil and gas reservoirs. Namely, research activities that aim at improving the current understanding of the underlying phenomena responsible for various GGI geologic storage mechanisms that can be used to develop or improve predictive modeling tools.
  • Recovery of natural gas from unconventional reservoirs characterized by low permeability. Namely, research activities that aim at improving the current understanding of permeability distribution, connectivity, and flow pathways that can be used to improve reservoir models and field design.


Awards were made to the following proposals:

  • Mohammad Piri, "Impact of Co-contaminants Injected with Supercritical CO2 on Fundamental Flow Properties of Sequestration Schemes in Deep Saline Aquifers: Experimentation & Modeling"
  • Frederico Furtado, Felipe Pereira, Mohammad Piri, "Simulation of CO2 Injection in Deep Saline Aquifers with Mathematical Verification & Physical Validations"
  • Lamia Goual, "Fundamental Investigation of Wettability in Supercritical-CO2/Brine/Rock Systems at Reservoir Conditions: Impact of Contaminants"
  • Felipe Pereira, Frederico Furtado, Victor Ginting, " On the Development of the UW-team Simulator for the Injection of CO2 in Deep Saline Aquifers"
  • Victor Ginting, Felipe Pereira, Jarret Barber, "A Bayesian Framework for Enabling Predictive Simulation & Uncertainty Quantification in History Matching Geologic Models for CO2 Injection"
  • Ye Zhang, KJ Reddy,  "An Integrated Well Location Optimization Study for Commercial-Scale CO2 Storage in a Deep Saline Aquifer"
