Non-hydrocarbons (H2S, CO2, N2) reduce the economic value of natural gas accumulations. This paper presents new approaches to evaluate the probability to encounter high amounts of non-hydrocarbons. These approaches were developed as one of the deliverables of a 2-year JIP project carried out by TNO from September 2014-July 2016. The newly...

The evolution of friction as a function of slip rate is important in understanding earthquake nucleation and propagation. Many laboratory experiments investigating friction of fault rocks are either conducted in the low velocity regime (10−8–10−4 ms−1) or in the high velocity regime (0.01–1 m s−1). Here, we report on the evolution of friction...

The Permian Rotliegend Slochteren Formation is a prolific gas bearing interval in the Netherlands. However, their reservoir porosity and permeability can be locally severely degraded by diagenetic pore-blocking cements. This work focusses on the cementational control on the reservoir quality. The drivers and causes of cementation and its effect...

Enhanced weathering of olivine has been suggested as a measure to lower the atmospheric CO2 level and it might also mitigate ocean acidification. This study aimed to characterise how olivine can weather in seawater, to elucidate the role of secondary precipitation and to ascertain the efficiency in terms of molar CO2 removal per mole of olivine...

We develop a framework based on the lexicographic method and the newly developed Stochastic-Simplex-Approximate-Gradient (StoSAG) algorithm to maximize the expected net-present-value (NPV) and minimize the associated risk or uncertainty in robust life-cycle production optimization. With the lexicographic method, we first maximize the expectation...

The spatial distribution of reactivated fractures and fracture permeability after stimulation are key controlling factors that determine typical drainage areas, shale to well connectivity, and hydrocarbon flow rates in fractured shales. In this paper, the influence of fault and fracture populations on the permeability of fractured shales is...

ICDP workshop COring the NOrth Sea Cenozoic focused on the scientific objectives and the technical aspects of drilling and sampling. Some 55 participants attended the meeting, ranging from climate scientists, drilling engineers, and geophysicists to stratigraphers and public outreach experts. Discussion on the proposed research sharpened the...

Faults and fractures in hydrocarbon reservoirs are key to some major production issues including (1) varying productivity of different well sections due to intersection of preferential flow paths with the wellbore, (2) varying hydrocarbon column heights in different reservoir compartments due to differences in the sealing capacity of faults, and...

Sedimentary basins in NW-Germany and the Netherlands represent potential targets for shale gas exploration in Europe due to the presence of Cretaceous (Wealden) and Jurassic (Posidonia) marlstones/shales as well as various Carboniferous black shales. In order to assess the regional shale gas prospectivity of this area, a 3D high-resolution...

High nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) fluxes from upstream agriculture threaten aquatic ecosystems in surface waters and estuaries, especially in areas characterized by high agricultural N and P inputs and densely drained catchments like the Netherlands. Controlled drainage has been recognized as an effective option to optimize soil moisture...

Geophysical monitoring activities were an important component of the CO2 injection program at the Ketzin site, Germany. Here we report on the seismic and electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) measurements performed during the period of the site development and CO2 injection. Details on the site geology, the history of the CO2 injection...

We present the results of a detailed seismic modeling study of induced seismicity observed at the Groningen gas field, situated in the North-eastern part of the Netherlands. Seismic simulations are valuable to support the interpretation of observed earthquake waveforms recordings and to increase the understanding of the underlying source...

Recently, a distance parameterization of flood fronts derived from seismic anomalies was proposed as a solution in combination with the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF), which is known as an efficient method for conditioning of multiple reservoir models to observed data. Even though the distance parameterization in terms of front positions is...

The crustal seismic velocity structure of northwestern Europe shows a low P-wave velocity zone (LVZ) in the lower crust along the Caledonian Thor suture zone (TSZ) that cannot be easily attributed to Avalonia or Baltica plates abutting the TSZ. The LVZ appears to correspond to a hitherto unrecognized crustal segment (accretionary complex) that...

Xin et al. (2016) present an approximate analytical solution to a variable saturated formulation of a drainage problem. They compared their solution to a saturated flow-based model and found a large discrepancy. However, the discrepancy is due to the value of the storage coefficient used and not to the model formulation.

The IMPACTS project investigated how impurities affect the design and operation of CO2 transport and storage processes. Experimental work and modelling have advanced the state of the art in the areas of how impurities in CO2 affect thermo-physical properties, fluid flow, corrosion, and reservoir chemical reactivity. High-quality experimental...

In many fields of study, and certainly in hydrogeology, uncertainty propagation is a recurring subject. Usually, parametrized probability density functions (PDFs) are used to represent data uncertainty, which limits their use to particular distributions. Often, this problem is solved by Monte Carlo simulation, with the disadvantage that one...

One of the main activities in the (re-)development of large hydrocarbon fields is the drilling of new wells. The drilling process may involve a large number of wells and take several years to complete. Challenges include the selection of a limited set of wells from many possible well paths, and the scheduling of the drilling itself....
