Modeling geological CO2 storage is characterized by scarce data, large spans in spatial and temporal scales, and delicate balances by different physical flow mechanisms. MRST-co2lab offers a set of open-source simulators and workflow tools that have been specially designed to meet these challenges. The software combines results of more than one decade of academic research and development on CO2 storage modeling into a unified toolchain that is easy and intuitive to use. The software is flexible and efficient and can be used to study realistic injection scenarios, or function as a platform for rapid prototyping of new models and computational methods.
- Computational tools designed specifically for the study of long-term, large-scale storage of CO2
- Intuitive graphical user interfaces makes it simple to explore and experiement with public data sets
- Applicable to the grid types and input formats used in industry-standard geological models
- Flexible programming framework, which also includes standard reservoir simulation tools that are thorougly tested and verified/validated against commercial reservoir simulators
- Full access to the entire source code
- Extensive suit of examples and datasets
- Combines results from many years of academic research in one single toolchain
- The MRST-co2lab website
- The MathWorks Carbon Sequestration Model offers a subset of the functionality from MRST-co2lab
- Getting into reservoir modeling for carbon sequestration, article from TheWayAhead/JPT, describes some of the graphical user interfaces found in the software.
