LCSANS – Capacity of large-scale CO2 storage in North Sea sloping aquifers from numerical simulation

The LCSANS project is a three year project based at the Centre for Integrated Petroleum Research and sponsored by the Research Council of Norway (Climit program), Foundation CMG, RWE Dea Norge and Total Norge. The project was launched in April 2013. The research focuses on the reliability of simulation tools for assessment of CO2 storage in sloping aquifers. The objective is to develop a best practice manual for numerical simulation of CO2 storage in North Sea sloping aquifers. The project involves studies of sensitivities, uncertainties and comparison of simulators. Different physical processes and geological information which are important for CO2 storage will be applied in these studies.
