Workshop on Numerical Models for Carbon Dioxide Storage in Geological Formations

Stuttgart, Germany, 2nd - 4th April, 2008.

The aim of the workshop is to discuss the current capabilities of existing mathematical and numerical models for CO2 storage in geological formations. A key issue will be to focus model development on open questions and challenges which CO2 geosequestration faces. Researchers and engineers will be invited to present their work and point out next steps necessary in model development.

Model testing with benchmark examples which are being developed in the project

'Numerical Investigation of CO2 Sequestration in Geological Formations - Problem-Oriented Benchmarks'

will also be an important part of the workshop. The benchmark examples are available below. Interested modellers can test their models with the benchmarks and present their results at the workshop.

The project mentioned above is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) within the geoscientific research and development programme GEOTECHNOLOGIEN (externer Link www.geotechnologien.de).
