World-wide review of CO2 and methane surface leakages to understand seal integrity
To understand the geological contexts and factors most susceptible to vertical fluid leakage and hence least favourable for maintaining seal integrity during CO2 injection, through:
- Construction of a world-wide catalogue of active and ancient CO2 and methane gas leaks in terms of geological context and particular structural setting;
- Detailed examination of selected cases to determine the relationship between leakage, structure and stresses;
- Estimation of leakage rates in the short (episodic) and long geological time-averaged sense for specific scenarios, with possible implications for assessing the impact of these leakages in terms of the global carbon budget.
A PhD in Earth Sciences is required with specialization in geology or geophysics. Competences required for the proposed work include:
- Structural geology
- Geophysical data interpretation
- Knowledge of sedimentary basin dynamics, stresses and hydrocarbon migration systems
- Numerical modeling of advection-diffusion and/or hydromechanical processes
