Kimberlina Closed System Reservoir Simulation


No License Restrictions

The reservoir-scale CO2 migration model was developed based on a geological study in the Southern San Joaquin Basin, California, using the geologic and hydrogeologic data obtained from many oil fields in that region (Birkholzer et al., 2011; Zhou et al., 2011; Zhou and Birkholzer, 2011). The model was then improved by having more layers in the Vedder Formation (the injection layer) in Wainwright et al. (2013). The domain includes twelve discontinuous or continuous (stacked) formations, extending 84 km in the eastern direction and 112 km in the northern direction. The domain also includes several faults, which are considered to be semi-impermeable sealing faults at large depth. Please see ReadMe fore more details on this submission.
