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...

The northern deep-waterGulf ofMexico is one of themost active deep-water petroleum provinces in the world. This paper introduces the regional geologic setting for the northern deep-water Gulf of Mexico and briefly discusses the importance of technology in developing the area's resources. Exploration has focused on four major geologic provinces:...

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...

We present an efficient workflow that combines multiscale (MS) forward simulation and stochastic gradient computation - MS-StoSAG - for the optimization of well controls applied to waterflooding under geological uncertainty. The Iterative Multiscale Finite Volume (i-MSFV), a mass conservative reservoir simulation strategy, is employed as the...

Fault slip surfaces and earthquake surface ruptures are not flat but show corrugations at all scales, also called roughness. These corrugations control the distribution of stress and strength on the fault plane and around. Here, we review the scaling properties of faults and earthquake slip roughness. Interestingly, both fault and earthquake...

This paper discusses the influence of hydraulic continuity of reservoirs and faults and the lack thereof on the occurrence of local pore fluid pressure conditions deviating from previously established regional trends. The hydrodynamic-based approaches will be illustrated with case studies from the Netherlands, in particular.

The structural framework and evolution from the Middle Jurassic to the present of the Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, western DeSoto Canyon, and western Lloyd Ridge protraction areas consist of a complex history influenced by basement fabric, multiple stages of salt movement, and gravitational gliding. A detailed tectono-stratigraphic...

Pore pressure changes caused by the production of gas from reservoir rocks result in reservoir compaction, stress changes on faults, potential fault reactivation and related seismic activity. This seismic activity is expected to be affected by the amount of pressure change, the spatial distribution of the pressure changes relative to the...

A key objective in any reservoir development plan is to achieve maximum reservoir exploitation which is usually quantified using an economic objective such as net present value (NPV). A key element of such an optimized development plan is an optimized well planning scheme (number, placement and trajectories of the wells). In the well planning...

The 86 fields and discoveries in the central Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, western DeSoto Canyon, and Lloyd Ridge protraction areas are summarized with production characteristics and representative seismic profiles and wire-line logs. Three trap styles are recognized: four-way closure, three-way closure, and stratigraphic. The reservoirs...

The structural history of the Mississippi Canyon, Atwater Valley, westernDeSoto, and western Lloyd Ridge protraction areas in the northeastern deep-water Gulf of Mexico is of a basin influenced by complex salt tectonics that controlled the formation of intraslope minibasins and sediment distribution. Large volumes of Middle Jurassic...

Pressure maintenance by injection of nitrogen into a reservoir is one of the potential options to mitigate induced seismicity during gas production. It is expected that seismicity and the seismic hazard can be reduced by decreasing the stress changes and compaction associated with the declining pore pressure in the reservoir rocks. However,...

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...

Brittle basement and sedimentary rocks, in particular if these are underlain by radiogenic crust, are considered a prime target for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). They are marked by high geothermal gradients, caused by radiogenic heat production, and are well suited to be used for geothermal doublets after hydraulic stimulation. Critical...

Depletion of the Groningen gas field has induced earthquakes, although the north of the Netherlands is a tectonically inactive region. Increased seismic activity raised public concern which led the government to initiate a number of studies with the aim of understanding the cause(s) of the earthquakes. If the relationship between production and...

The Groningen gas field has shown considerable compaction and subsidence since starting production in the early 1960s. The behaviour is understood from the geomechanical response of the reservoir pressure depletion. By integrating surface movement measurements and modelling, the model parameters can be constrained and understanding of the...

In preparation for future requirements to abate CO2 emission levels, a CO2 storage feasibility study was carried out for the country of Kuwait. At present, no definite plans exist to install capture facilities at the larger emission points in the country; the study presented is one of the first steps to prepare the country for a low-carbon...

Understanding the mechanisms and key parameters controlling depletion-induced seismicity is key for seismic hazard analyses and the design of mitigation measures. In this paper a methodology is presented to model in 2D the static stress development on faults offsetting depleting reservoir compartments, reactivation of the fault, nucleation of...

For decades, well tests have been widely used in the oil industry for evaluation of well productivity and reservoir properties, which provide key information for field development and facilities design. In conventional well tests equilibrium conditions are required in the reservoir before the test. Furthermore, a single well only can be produced...

In a European wide project, including Ukraine, 81 shale formations from 33 thermogenic and two biogenic gas bearing onshore basins were studied for hydrocarbon potential. All formations have been mapped and data complied based on information and expert judgments gathered from the respective European National Geological Surveys. Parameters...
