General awareness of induced seismicity and gas leakage related to energy reservoir exploitation has been on the rise for several years (McGarr, 2002; Davies et al., 2013). This includes events from short-term Huid injection for reservoir simulation (Giardini, 2009; Atkinson, 2016), Long term hydrocarbon extraction (Van Thienen-Visser and...

This research is a legal analysis concerning four scenarios for cross-border carbon dioxide (CO2) transport that could increase the deployment of carbon-capture and storage (CCS) deployment in Europe. The legal analysis categorizes the law into three levels-international, national and local-and considers the four scenarios in light of these...

In this paper we present results of a global resource assessment for geothermal energy within deep aquifers for direct heat utilization. Greenhouse heating, spatial heating, and spatial cooling are considered in this assessment. We derive subsurface temperatures from geophysical data and apply a volumetric heat-in-place method to improve current...

In the central part of Hungary, an earthquake with the local magnitude of 4.5 occurred near the town of Oroszlány, on 29 January 2011. The main shock and its more than 200 aftershocks were recorded by a significant number of three-component seismic stations, which enabled us to perform multiple event location on the event cluster. We applied the...

The goal of reservoir management is to make decisions with the objective of maximizing the value creation from the oil or gas production. In order to do this models that preserve geological realism and have predictive capabilities are being developed and used. These models are commonly calibrated by using Assisted History Matching (AHM) methods...

A workflow is presented to determine the detailed, high-resolution pattern of erosion in maturely explored Sedimentary Basins by analysing the sonic log-based interval velocity patterns of nine stratigraphic intervals complemented by a geometrical approach involving the extrapolation of 3-D seismic reflectors. The jointly evaluated results of...

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...

Alternating injection of water and gas (WAG) has been widely applied as an oil recovery strategy since the late 1950s. The expected benefits are improved macroscopic sweep, with the water and gas sweeping lower and upper zones of the reservoir respectively, and improved microscopic sweep due to various effects leading to lowering of the residual...

The Mensa and Thunder Horse intraslope minibasins in southcentralMississippi Canyon, northern deep-water Gulf ofMexico, had a linked structural evolution from the Early Cretaceous through the late Miocene. Analysis of the two minibasins illustrates the complexities of deep-water sedimentation and salt tectonics in intraslope minibasins. This...

In 1996 a geothermal energy project was initiated at Klaipėda, Lithuania, to demonstrate the feasibility of using low enthalpy geothermal water as a renewable energy resource in district heating systems. The Klaipėda geothermal plant is situated within the West Lithuanian geothermal anomaly with a relatively high heat flow density of 70-90 mW/m2...

A distance parameterization of flood fronts derived from time-lapse seismic anomalies was recently developed to facilitate incorporation of time-lapse seismic data into history matching workflows based on ensemble methods such as the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) and the ensemble smoother (ES). A number of advantages were demonstrated on...

The petroleum systems of two adjacent Miocene intraslope minibasins in the northern deep-water Gulf of Mexico are modeled to investigate why one of them produces primarily gas but the other produces oil. Specifically, the Mensa field produces gas from a faulted four-way closure that overlies a turtle structure, whereas the adjacent Thunder Horse...

Geothermal energy is an important renewable energy resource, whose share is growing rapidly in the energy mix. Geosciences provide fundamental knowledge on Earth system processes and properties, required for the development of new methods to identify prospective geothermal resources suitable for exploitation. Through robust prediction and...

Thunder Horse and Mensa are two of the largest fields of oil or gas, respectively, in the northern deep-water Gulf of Mexico. The fields are present in adjacent intraslope minibasins, located approximately 12 mi (19 km) apart in Mississippi Canyon. Both fields illustrate important complexities of deep-water sedimentation. Analysis is based on...

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...

An ensemble-based production optimization technique is applied to a simulation model of OMERS Energy's Chigwell Viking Pool in order to determine optimal CO2-WAG cycle length, injection rates and production bottom hole pressures (BHPs). An ensemble-based approximate gradient calculation is used in an expected net present value (NPV) maximization...

Recent progress in 4D seismic history matching benefits greatly from the use of 4D seismic timelapse data. Several methods for inversion of 4D seismic timelapse data for reservoir pressure and saturation have been developed with mixed success. Most of these methods work well on synthetic data or real data with low noise levels, but degrade in...

Geothermal drilling environments are often hostile to well materials, especially in magmatic settings where properties of well casing and cements may rapidly change as a result of high temperatures and chemically active formation fluids. Prolonging the lifetime of such geothermal wells is one of the key challenges to achieve a commercially...

Large-scale CO2 injection in saline aquifers will cause pressure build-up in brine far beyond the extent of CO2 plume. In this paper, we evaluate the geomechanical responses of large-scale CO2 storage in the multilayer aquifer of the Kra Al-Maru Trend in Kuwait. The site was selected after screening the whole territory of Kuwait, identifying and...
