Salt clogging during supercritical CO2 injection into a downscaled borehole model
Injection of CO2 into saline storage aquifers is often accompanied by drying of the formation water and salt precipitation. Subsequent salt clogging of a well bore and the near wellbore rock matrix may lead to injectivity impairment. In this paper we present medium-scale experiments on salt precipit...
The effect of brine supply on CO2 injectivity impairment due to salt precipitation
Salt clogging has been recognized as an important factor for injectivity impairment in the CO2 injection wells. While only a small amount of field experience with salt clogging has been reported to date, a large number of experimental and numerical studies have been published on the topics of inject...
