IMPACT of fault rock properties on CO2 storage in sandstone reservoirs

The IMPACT project is a 4 year project based at the Centre for Integrated Petroleum Research and sponsored by the Research Council of Norway (CLIMIT program) and Statoil. The project was formally launched in January 2011. The research focuses on the effect of geological heterogeneities such as faults, fractures and deformation bands on CO2 storage in sandstone reservoirs. It involves an integrated approach that utilizes geological field work, experiments and numerical modeling. In addition, studying a real case (Snøvit Field) gives the project a unique opportunity to investigate the interaction between the Sn?vit complex structure, its diagenetic and sedimentary features and CO2 injection and sequestration.
