PDRA 1, DETECT - Risk of CO2 leaking along fractures

Heriot-Watt University, School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society

Job reference: IRC11176
Full-time, 35 months fixed-term
Closing date: 20 Sep 2017 23:00 (UK time)

The project is funded for 36 months by the ACT (Accelerating CCS Technology) program and will perform a risk-based approach to evaluate leakage from deep CO2 storage sites. The aim of this project is to generate guidelines for determining the risk of CO2 leakage along fractures across the primary caprock using an integrated monitoring and hydro-mechanical-chemical modelling approach. Key duties and responsibilities include, but are not limited to, characterising mudrock fracture patterns from field data and develop general concepts of fracture patterns in fault damage zones; determining stress-dependent fracture permeability in the laboratory on a wide number of different mudrocks to produce model input data to be implemented in fracture flow models; contribute to qualitative and quantitative risk assessment for caprock leakage.

PDRA 2, DETECT - Determining risk of CO2 leakage

Heriot-Watt University, School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society

Job reference: IRC11252  
Full-time, 35 months fixed-term
Closing date: 20 Sep 2017 23:00 (UK time)

The project is funded for 36 months by the ACT (Accelerating CCS Technology) program and will perform a risk-based approach to evaluate leakage from deep CO2 storage sites. The aim of this project is to generate guidelines for determining the risk of CO2 leakage along fractures across the primary caprock using an integrated monitoring and hydro-mechanical-chemical modelling approach. Key duties and responsibilities include, but are not limited to modelling the flow in fracture and matrix as well as its geomechanical and geochemical coupling on the fracture and fracture network scale; use and implementing advanced modeling concepts in the Matlab Reservoir Simulation Toolbox (MRST).
