Geochemical and geomechanical testing of near wellbore CO2 injectivity improvement

Geochemical and geomechanical testing of near wellbore CO2 injectivity improvement project encompassed three key parts, discussed in this report, aimed at supporting Australian CO2 geosequestration field demonstration and commercial projects.

Lab experiments were conducted on archived and fresh cores from the target formations of the Wandoan CCS project in the Surat Basin, Queensland and Berea Sandstone supplied by ANLEC R&D for the purpose of benchmarking of permeability results across related ANLEC R&D projects.

Geomechanical tests provided the basis for stress/permeability relationships.
