Carbon Capture and Storage projects aim to store captured CO2 in the subsurface. It is vital that there is a good understanding of the storage area, and how it will react to the injection of CO2.  

Depleted hydrocarbon fields are a natural contender for CCS, as they comprise a partially “empty” reservoir, the infrastructure to inject the CO2 into it and the potential capacity to monitor the subsurface. The geomechanical characterisation of the subsurface reservoir area and its history is critical to predicting the behaviour of the subsurface when the CO2 is injected thus minimising the risk of leakage through e.g. fault reactivation.  

Our wellbore stability studies capture a crucial level of detail of the reservoir and field history to feed into geomechanical models to give you a good understanding of the subsurface storage area.
