Kevin Dome Geologic Model

As one of seven Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships, the Big Sky Carbon Sequestration Partnership (BSCSP) is supported through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). BSCSP’s goal is to demonstrate that Kevin Dome is a safe and viable location for the long-term storage of carbon dioxide (CO2).

One component of this project was the continued development of a geomodel that was used to characterize the CO2 storage complex. A geomodel was developed to represent the Upper Duperow (seal), the Middle Duperow (reservoir), overlying formations and underlying formations. Schlumberger Carbon Services was contracted to develop this geological model of Kevin Dome and the surrounding region. This geomodel used well data, well fracture interpretation, core, 2D seismic, 3D seismic and 3D seismic inversion products to statistically map the lateral heterogeneity of porosity and permeability within the storage complex. Now that the geomodel is completed, it is to be used as the primary input for reservoir simulations of CO2 migration in the Duperow.

Files included in this submission offer versions of the model that require Petrel software with which they were created as well as non-petrel versions to allow use by a wider audience. There multiple scales and versions available here as final products as well as an in depth technical report that describes the methods used. Individual files have more information on unzipping procedures as these files are very large and would be difficult to download in their full form. Please read any information provided with the zip packages to ensure successful download and unpackaging.
