A scientific visitor helps improve the monitoring of CO2 storage facilities

Over the past ten years, IFPEN has been conducting research on the geochemical monitoring of the geological storage of CO2, in order to gain a better understanding of the natural water flows that may

Foam rheology in porous media

For processes involving gas injection, such as enhanced oil recovery (EORa) and CO2 storage operations, the use of foam makes it easier to control gas mobility. Improving these processes requires

Phase equilibria in confined media

In many geological reservoirs, pore size distribution is highly heterogeneous (from 2 to 50 nm). While the molecular size of the confined fluids is between 0.5 and 10 nm, their interaction forces with

Adsorption, a key factor for geological storage

Low permeability geological layers, already known within the context of oil exploration, are once again becoming a focus of interest for energy (compressed air), gas (CO2, H2, CH4) and waste storage

A hydro-mechanical model for underground naturally fractured rocks

Natural underground fractures in rocks provide fluids with preferential flow pathways. The resulting global permeability is exploited for energy production (geothermal energy and oil and gas recovery)
