2 O que é um selo? «Uma rocha argilosa ou salina de baixa permeabilidade localizada acima de um reservatório e que impede o escape de fluidos (gás, solução, óleo)» IPCC, 2005 O selo tem uma função de confinamento do CO 2 e uma função selante É a tampa da nossa garrafa de água (reservatório) com gás (CO 2 )! CEPAC PUCRS Porto Alegre 23/09/2008 2

3 Clayey caprock and its mineralogy CLAYS QUARTZ CARBONATES = CIMENT And other minerals CEPAC PUCRS Porto Alegre 23/09/2008 3

4 Expected properties of clayey caprock Slow reactivity (geochemistry) Low permeability (10-11 até m².s -1 ) (hydrogeology) Homogeneity (geology) Clay minerals: low permeability, high sorption and ionic exchange capacity, swelling properties, elasticity CEPAC PUCRS Porto Alegre 23/09/2008 4

5 Caprock sealing and confinement functions Geochemical control Limitation of CO 2 migration Geomechanical control (elasticity) => Natural barrier against fluids migration CEPAC PUCRS Porto Alegre 23/09/2008 5

6 Geological contexts and caprock composition Carbonate (limestone ( limestone) Sandstone Cap-rock composition: 40-70%: Carbonates 10-40%: Clay minerals & accessory minerals Paris Basin Weyburn Reservoir composition: 60-90%: Carbonates 10-20%: Clay minerals & accessory minerals Cap-rock composition: 40-60%: Clay minerals 40-60%: Quartz, feldspar Fe-Mn oxides & accessory minerals Colorado, Parana Basin Sleipner,, In Salah Reservoir composition: 10-30%: Clay minerals 60-90%: Quartz, feldspar Fe-Mn oxides & accessory minerals CEPAC PUCRS Porto Alegre 23/09/2008 6

7 Potential migrations of CO 2 through the caprock Caprock Properties: Low reactivity, low permeability, good homogeneity, =>supported by clay minerals Functions for the storage: CO 2 confinement and long-term sealing Initial caprock: Heterogeneities of structure and composition CO 2 injection: plume migration until the upper level of the reservoir, pressure exerced on the caprock Sources of failure of the system for the Performance and Safety Assessment => Study focused on the potential geochemical reactivity and reactive transport Connectivity Continuity Aqueousdi ffusion From João Lampreia (UFRJ) Fails Heterogeneity Fractures Plume Migration (capillarity) Dilatation Elasticity Fracturation Injection pressure CEPAC PUCRS Porto Alegre 23/09/2008 8
