Dissolved CO2 effect on the reactivity of the Hontomín reservoir rocks (limestone and sandstone)
A test site for CO2 geological storage is situated in Hontomin (Burgos, northern Spain) with a reservoir rock that is mainly composed of limestone (80-85%) and sandstone (15-20%). The reservoir rock
CO2 mineral trapping comparison in different regions: predicted geochemical reactivity of the Precipice Sandstone reservoir and overlying Evergreen Formation
Injected CO2 streams may have geochemical reactivity to different rock types in a CO2 storage complex depending on solubility and formation water chemistry. The Precipice Sandstone and Evergreen
Modelling CO2-brine-rock interactions in the Upper Paleozoic formations of Ordos Basin used for CO2 sequestration
Subsurface immobilization and conversion of CO2 into solid mineral phases in deep siliciclastic saline formations containing silicate minerals, commonly known as “mineral trapping”, is gaining
Impacts of mineralogical compositions on different trapping mechanisms during long-term CO2 storage in deep saline aquifers
Abstract Deep saline aquifers in sedimentary basins are considered to have the greatest potential for CO2 geological storage in order to reduce carbon emissions. CO2 injected into a saline sandstone
CO2 geological storage: hydro-chemo-mechanical analyses and implications
The injectivity of CO 2 and the integrity of the reservoir-caprock system are affected by CO 2 invasion, water-CO 2 -mineral reactions, and ensuing mineral dissolution and precipitation. We identify
Numerical investigation of Lower Tuscaloosa Sandstone and Selma Chalk caprock under geological CO2 sequestration conditions: mineral precipitation and permeability evolution
A numerical model was developed using CrunchFlow to simulate reactive transport and porosity and permeability changes of sandstone and carbonate rock samples taken from the Lower Tuscaloosa Formation


Reactive geochemical transport simulation to study mineral trapping for CO2 disposal in deep arenaceous formations
[1] A reactive fluid flow and geochemical transport numerical model for evaluating long-term CO2 disposal in deep geologic formations has been developed. The numerical model is needed because

Geochemical modeling of steady state fluid flow and chemical reaction during supergene enrichment of porphyry copper deposits
In this study motivated by detailed field work and laboratory analysis, we numerically simulate the supergene enrichment of porphyry copper deposits. We utilize a new program developed to model
Aquifer disposal of CO2-rich greenhouse gases: Extension of the time scale of experiment for CO2-sequestering reactions by geochemical modelling
SummaryIn previous work,Gunter et al. (1993), suggested water-rock reactions in deep aquifers in sedimentary basins could sequester injected-CO2-waste from industry, thereby reducing greenhouse gas

Mechanism of burial metamorphism of argillaceous sediments: 3. O-isotope evidence
O-isotope analysis of shales sampled from wells drilled through sedimentary deposits in the Gulf of Mexico region indicates that the sediments and rocks are not isotopically equilibrated systems —
Thermohydrological conditions and silica redistribution near high‐level nuclear wastes emplaced in saturated geological formations
Evaluation of the thermohydrological conditions near high-level nuclear waste packages is needed for the design of the waste canister and for overall repository design and performance assessment.
