What makes a good reservoir to inject and store CO2? It's all about the rock and its properties. Two key properties are porosity and permeability. Whereas porosity is defined as how much fluid a rock can hold, permeability is described as how well the fluid can flow through that rock. Imagine porosity as the storage space and permeability as the smooth pathways for fluids to flow through.
Learn from Science Rob how rock porosity and permeability can help us better understand and optimize CO2 injection and carbon storage. This and other subsurface insights plays a crucial role in evaluating carbon storage sites for appraisal. Learn more about essential measurements for carbon storage site appraisal as an early, critical step in any carbon sequestration project.
