Monitoring of Geological CO2 Sequestration Using Isotopes and PF Tracers
Performer: Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Project No: FWP-FEAA045
Provided geochemistry support for the design of the Frio brine injection pilots.
Provided all the baseline gas chemistry, and gas and brine isotope chemistry for both the Frio I and II pilot injection studies.
Completed assessment of brine isotope analysis, as well as gas chemistry and stable isotope analyses, for samples obtained post-Frio II injection. Results indicate that, by combining the geochemical and Perfluorocarbon Tracer (PFT) technologies, definitive tracking of the CO2 was possible.
Existing project results were published in numerous publications and conference presentations.
