HPC-G builds upon a tight collaboration between NORCE, SINTEF and Equinor focused on development of the Open Porous Media (OPM) reservoir simulator Flow towards a dedicated simulator for CO2 storage. Building upon existing capabilities in OPM Flow, the project will deliver a groundbreaking HPC-capable CO2-storage simulator with advanced functionality for meeting the gigatonne storage challenge. Code development will be based on concepts formed in collaboration with key stakeholders in industry, research and the public sector with strong interests in maturing CO2 storage at the gigatonne scale: Oljedirektoratet (Norway), CarbonNet (Australia), UT Austin Bureau of Economic Geology (USA), TNO (Netherlands). Reference group workshops will be a platform for discussing the challenges, priorities and opportunities for development of new simulation technology to support large-scale CO2 storage deployment. The project is financed by CLIMIT-Demo/Gassnova as well as from in-kind and direct financing from Equinor.
