WP3 will assess the storage capacity and integrity of the sites. Dynamic and complex simulation will identify the likelihood of pressure build-up, based on the geological model, reservoir heterogeneity and fluid flow characteristics. 


  • Estimating storage capacity and defining the injection strategy (well location and injection rate) 
  • Estimating CO2 fate in the long term
  • Estimating the integrity of near wellbore caprock and fault/fractures
  • Providing input data and information for tasks in WP4 and WP5


D3.2 Report on static modelling with uncertainties

This report summarizes the work that has been performed in the WorkPackage 3, “WP3, Static and Dynamic modelling”, task 3.1, “Static modelling and Uncertainties”.

The objective of this task was to build a 3D geological model covering all the targeted area as defined in WorkPackage 2 (“WP2, Geo‐characterization”) for the choice of the pilot location. The domain contains the storage complex zone (reservoir and caprock), and the underburden and overburden to fit the purposes of the related tasks (3.2, 3.3 and 3.4). Static models are a crucial step for the upcoming dynamic modelling to estimate storage capacity and provide the basis for the risk analysis. While pursuing the efforts on this task, regular knowledge‐sharing sessions were committed between partners involved in this WP3.1, and all benefited support from AspenTech on best practices for modelling, in particular for using Aspen Skua software.

This task relied heavily on data that were collected and processed in WP2. Thus, the quality of this work results also from a strong involvement, communication, and data exchange between WP2 and WP3.
