Webinar: Stress path of faults near CO2 injectors: Case study using Smeaheia 3D geomechanics model

Simple but reliable estimation of CO2 injection-induced stresses change acting on the fault are important for an early-phase screening of critically oriented faults near the injector.

Presenter: Jung Chan Choi, NGI

This webinar presents numerical simulation results that investigate the factors influencing the stress paths of faults using the field scale Smeaheia 3D geomechanics model.

The results are then compared to widely used assumptions (e.g. uniaxial strain condition, no-confinement condition) to provide useful guidance on reliable fault stress paths that can be incorporated into analytical screening tools.
