Predicting and monitoring the long term behavior of CO2 injected in deep geological formations

The PANACEA project's aim is to understand the long-term fate of geologically stored CO2. The objectives of this project are to:

  • Increase the understanding of the long-term fate of stored CO2.
  • Evaluate the mechanisms of leakage through the cap-rock and the well.
  • Investigate fluid-rock interactions affecting reservoir quality and cap-rock integrity
  • Investigate reactivity with well cements and the effects on cement mechanical properties
  • Quantify the effects of impurities in the CO2 stream
