Well leakage risk is a key concern for the safety and economics of geological CO2 storage. Maintaining the integrity of annulus cement in the wellbore during the lifetime of well is of paramount importance. Cement properties and the stress state in cement at the downhole conditions are however uncertain and difficult, if at all possible, to...

Maintaining the integrity of the annular cement in the wellbore is paramount in successful hydrocarbon exploitation, subsurface energy storage, geothermal energy production, and geologic carbon sequestration. Debonding at the casing-cement interface can create connected flow paths for fluid leakage along the well leading to loss of zonal...

Rock salt formations are a common reservoir seal worldwide with excellent sealing capacity. Restoring the sealing capacity of rock salt caprocks penetrated by wells using the same rock salt as plugging material is therefore an attractive, safe and environmentally friendly option. The concept is based on the removal of a section of casing over a...

Building geomechanical models for induced seismicity in complex reservoirs poses a major challenge, in particular if many faults need to be included. We developed a novel way of calculating induced stress changes and associated seismic moment response for structurally complex reservoirs with tens to hundreds of faults. Our specific target was to...

Seismic events induced by the depletion of hydrocarbon reservoirs can cause damage to housing and cause societal and economic unrest. However, the factors controlling the nucleation and size of production-induced seismic events are not well understood. Here we used geomechanical modeling of production-induced stresses and dynamic rupture...

Loading history during drilling, completion and operations of the well can affect wellbore integrity. Debonding along well cement interfaces leads to the creation of micro-annuli and potential leakage pathways. We investigate the risk of debonding by modeling the integrity of an example well throughout its life-time using a finite element...

Ground surface dynamics is one of the processes influencing the future of the Wadden Sea area. Vertical land movement, both subsidence and heave, is a direct contributor to changes in the relative sea level. It is defined as the change of height of the Earth’s surface with respect to a vertical datum. In the Netherlands, the Normaal Amsterdams...

Mitigation of induced seismicity associated with large-scale energy production from subsurface resources requires models beyond the current state of the art. In countries with long histories of conventional gas production, such as the Netherlands, issues are mainly associated with depletion-induced seismicity caused by fault reactivation due to...

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...

Cap-rock integrity is of paramount importance during injection and subsequent long-term storage of CO2 in the subsurface. Preexisting (natural) and man-induced fractures in the cap rock represent potential flow paths out of the storage formation. In this study, a first-order semi-analytical model of flow through a vertical fracture penetrating...

In the Netherlands, over 190 gas fields of varying size have been exploited, and 15% of these have shown seismicity. The prime cause for seismicity due to gas depletion is stress changes caused by pressure depletion and by differential compaction. The observed onset of induced seismicity due to gas depletion in the Netherlands occurs after a...

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...

Finite element analyses were performed to estimate axial deformation of cavern wells due to gas storage operations in solution-mined salt caverns. Caverns shrink over time due to salt creep and the cavern roof subsides potentially threatening well integrity. Cavern deformation, deformation of salt surrounding the cavern and impacts on well...

Geomechanical numerical simulations were conducted to analyze the stability of faults during gas production. A FLAC3D model of a fault intersecting a producing gas reservoir was developed which incorporates the fully dynamic behavior of the fault and surrounding rock mass, and a fault frictional behavior based on a slip-weakening law. The...

Natural gas from the Załęcze gas field located in the Fore-Sudetic Monocline of the Southern Permian Basin has been produced since November 1973, and continuous gas production led to a decrease in the initial reservoir pressure from 151 bar to about 22 bar until 2010. We investigated a prospective enhanced gas recovery operation at the Załęcze...
