When supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) is injected into deep subsurface reservoirs, much of the affected volume consists of pores containing both water and scCO(2), with water films remaining as the mineral-wetting phase. Although water films can affect multiphase flow and mediate reactions at mineral surfaces, little is known about how film thicknesses depend on system properties. Here, the thicknesses of water films were estimated on the basis of considerations of capillary pressure… CONTINUE READING
