MRST-co2lab offers two types of vertical-equilibrium simulators:
Both types of solvers can handle industry-standard grid formats and give detailed inventories delinating how the injected carbon volumes have been trapped by different mechanisms. For the fully-implicit solvers, support for thermal and geomechanical effects is in progress.
For those seeking a more conventional simulation approach, CO2 sequestration can be simulated using MRST's standard reservoir simulation capabilities on structured and unstructured grid:
We also have several examples of compositional flow capabilities inhouse (these may be available upon request).
