Induced stress changes due to CO2 injection into geological reservoirs can mechanically damage bounding fault- and top seals creating preferential pathways for CO2 migration from the containment or trigger existing faults causing seismic activity at storage sites. In this paper we present geomechanical simulations of the poro-mechanical effects,...

The geomechanical effects of past hydrocarbon production and subsequent CO2 injection in depleted gas reservoirs were evaluated as a part of several recently accomplished feasibility studies of CO2 storage in the Netherlands. The objectives of geomechanical studies were to assess the mechanical integrity of a reservoir-seal system, i.e. the...

Geomechanical simulations were conducted on a number of site-specific numerical models of depleted gas fields considered for CO2 storage in the Netherlands. Simulations were aimed at assessing the maximum areal extent of stress perturbation around depleted reservoirs at the end of depletion period. Simulation results indicate that the extent of...

The P18-4 compartment (operated by TAQA Energy B.V.) would be injected by CO2 at a minimum temperature of 12 degrees C. At these temperatures, the CO2 phase will either be a gas or a liquid. As the initial temperature of the reservoir is 120 oC, the CO2 will eventually be the gaseous or (at higher pressures), the supercritical phase. An...

Many uncertainties exist in geochemical modeling. Mineral reactive surface area is one of the uncertain parameters. QEMSCAN analyses are performed on sandstone samples from a Dutch CO2 natural analogue to determine reactive surface areas. Geochemical modeling is performed using QEMSCAN surface areas and surface areas which are conventionally...

Geomechanical simulations were conducted to study the effects of reservoir depletion on the stability of internal and boundary faults in gas reservoirs overlain by elastic and viscoelastic salt caprocks. The numerical models were of a disk-shaped gas reservoir with idealized geometry; they mimic the structure of a gas field in the northern...

Lotos-Euros is a chemistry transportmodel developed in the Netherlands, and is used for air quality assessments and forecasts. Operational air quality forecasts for the Netherlands concerning ozone and PM10 are made available on the RIVM webpage (http://www.lml.rivm.nl/verw.html) and are used to warn the population in case of predicted...

We report a field study on solution mining of magnesium chloride from bischofite layers in the Netherlands at depths between 1500 and 1850 m. Subsidence that was observed in the area is due to part of the brine production being realized by cavern squeeze; some of which were connccted. Wc used an earlier developed inversion scheme to quantify the...

This paper reports modeling of gas field production and CO2 injection in a theoretical reservoir based on characteristics of the P18 gas field in the Dutch offshore, which consists of four geological deposits with different petrophysical properties. We especially focus on the brine flow during and after exploitation of the reservoir, which...

This article presents a set of Late Pleistocene marine mollusk radiocarbon (AMS) age estimates of 30-50 14C kyr BP, whereas a MIS5 age (>75 ka) is indicated by quartz and feldspar OSL dating, biostratigraphy, U-Th dating, and age-depth relationships with sea level. These results indicate that the 14C dates represent minimum ages. The age...

GEISER was a European project on understanding and mitigation of induced seismicty in geothermal operations. The project involved several European research institutions as well as industry and was funded by the European Commission within FP7. GEISER addressed a better understanding of the key parameters that control induced seismicity in...

The landscape evolution of the southern North Sea basin is complex and has left a geographically varying record of marine, lacustrine, fluvial and glacial sedimentation and erosion. Quaternary climatic history, which importantly included glaciation, combined with tectonics gave rise to cyclic and non-cyclic changes of sedimentation and erosion...

Seismic interferometry applied to ambient-noise measurements allows the retrieval of the seismic response between pairs of receivers. We studied ambient-noise seismic interferometry (ANSI) to retrieve time-lapse reflection responses from a reservoir during CO<inf>2</inf> geologic sequestration, using the case of the experimental site of Ketzin,...

Pre-Westphalian layers are considered as potential source rocks in the Netherlands. However, there is little amount of information available on their maturity. 3D basin modelling is carried out on Central Onshore Netherlands to investigate the maturity of the deep Carboniferous source rocks. A detailed 3D geological model is used as input which...

The seals of the shallow gas occurrences in the northern offshore of the Netherlands are formed by siliciclastic intra-delta mudstones of Plio-Pleistocene age. There are no publicly available measured values of the seal capacity of these Plio-Pleistocene caprock mudstones. We developed, tested and applied a systematic approach to evaluate the...
