leakage through existing wells : current technology and regulations

  title={leakage through existing wells : current technology and regulations},
  author={S Ide and Samuel J. Friedmann and Howard J. Herzog},
Preexisting wells and well bores are high-permeability pathways through the crust, and as such present zones of elevated risk to CO2 storage projects. Although current well closure and abandonment technology appears sufficient to contain CO2 at most sites, individual wells may suffer from a variety of factors that limit their integrity, including improper cementation, improper plugging, overpressure, corrosion, and other failure conditions. As a whole, wells in the US can be subdivided into… CONTINUE READING
