What are EDXtools?
EDXtools provide access to data and information assembled as custom themes of high interest. EDXtools are standard, static, frameworks; however, the data presented within them may update and change with time, thus offering fresh and current information. EDXtools may accommodate spatial and/or non-spatial data. Some EDXtools are designed to allow the EDXtool to communicate with EDX servers to allow for searching, querying, and displaying data.
The prediction of carbon dioxide solubility in brine at conditions relevant to carbon sequestration is crucial. The CO2 MMoPS is a multi-model predictive system which calculates the solubility of CO2 in brines considering nine mathematical models across the range of T-P-X conditions likely to be encountered in carbon sequestration applications. With user-supplied values of the temperature, pressure and salinity conditions of the CO2 storage formation,CO2 MMoPS calculates the CO2 solubility using the most accurate equation of state or empirical model for the given conditions.
NETL's Geocube is a flexible, customizable web mapping application that concatenates key spatial datasets and information relevant to energy research needs for a given region. The Geocube connects users to data and information spanning the subsurface to the surface via EDX, integrating its online search capabilities and from current data feeds. Users have the flexibility to develop maps with spatial elements of interest to them and export and download their custom web-map and/or the underlying datasets. The first NETL Geocube released focuses on the offshore Gulf of Mexico region. Throughout the next year additional Geocubes for the U.S. are planned.
National Energy Technology Laboratory’s (NETL) GEO Water Energy Link Library, geoWELL, is a map-based application that provides quick access to the primary on-line sources of subsurface geologic and wellbore (oil, gas, and underground injection) information for appropriate U.S. state, tribal and federal agencies.
MFiX (Multiphase Flow with Interphase Exchanges) is an open source, general-purpose computer code developed at NETL for describing the hydrodynamics, heat transfer and chemical reactions in fluid-solids systems. MFiX calculations give transient data on the three-dimensional distribution of pressure, velocity, temperature, and species mass fractions. Users can download the code, documentation, and see examples of code application.
The National Carbon Sequestration Database (NATCARB) is a geographic information system (GIS)-based tool for viewing carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) potential across the United States. Through a graphical user interface, NATCARB displays locations and associated metadata about stationary CO2 sources and potential geologic sinks. Users can access, query and model, analyze, display, and download CO2 storage resource data.
The North America Atlas of Unconventional Hydrocarbon Resources is an interactive web map application that depicts geologic basin, oil and gas plays, and unconventional well locations in an online map environment with features connected to geospatial and bibliographic databases. The tool also connects the user to additional data and information through an integrated online search function, including reports, well logs, and production information.
