Injection of CO2 in geological formations is the major option for the final step in CCS (CO2 Capture and Storage). The Reservoir Technology group has since before 1990 been developing technology for this concept. The Norwegian Continental Shelf has already seen demonstration of safe CO2 injection and storage on industrial scale, and very likely has storage capacity for a large portion of the CO2 that needs to be captured and stored from sources in Northern Europe.
The research group performs research projects with
- Conceptual and economical analysis
- Numerical simulation of CO2 disposal (storage in aquifers and combinations of CO2 EOR and storage)
- Core-flooding and phase behaviour
