Geologic sequestration is a proven means of permanent CO2 greenhouse gas storage, but it is difficult to design and manage such efforts. The Center for Subsurface Modeling (http://www.ices.utexas.edu/csm/) at The University of Texas at Austin (UT-Austin) is currently working on a prototypical computational system to accurately predict the fate of injected CO2 in conditions governed by multiphase flow, rock mechanics, multicomponent transport, thermodynamic phase behavior, chemical reactions within both the fluid and the rock, and the coupling of all these phenomena. The data for the CO2 Sequestration Simulation shown was created with the combined effort of UT-Austin, IBM, and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and was generated on the KAUST BlueGene/P Supercomputer.
