CO2, Methane, and Brine Leakage Through Subsurface Pathways: Exploring Modeling, Measurement, and Policy Options

Subsurface pathways, such as abandoned oil and gas wells and faults, can serve as leakage pathways for CO2 , methane, brine, and other fluids. These pathways allow fluids from deep subsurface formations to migrate into shallow groundwater aquifers or to the atmosphere. Between 200,000 and 970,000 abandoned wells in the state of Pennsylvania likely account …

Evaluation of the Potential for Gas and CO2 Leakage Along Wellbores

Evaluation of the Potential for Gas and CO2 Leakage Along Wellbores Author(s): Stefan Bachu and Theresa Watson Date: 03.2009 Source/Publisher: SPE Drilling & Completion 01/2009; 24(1):115-126. DOI: 10.2118/106817-MS ABSTRACT Implementation of CO2 storage in geological media requires proper assessment of the risk of CO2 leakage from storage sites. Leakage pathways may exist through and along …
