Proper site selection for CO2 geologic storage requires assessing the impact of potential leakage of CO2
from deep subsurface reservoirs to overlying drinking water aquifers.
ESD’s LianGe Zheng recently headed a team of scientists (including ESD’s
Nic Spycher, Jens Birkholzer, Tianfu Xu, and John Apps) that
investigated two leakage issues and their potential effects on
groundwater quality: the transport of organic compounds by supercritical
CO2 from deep storage reservoirs and the upward migration of CO2 with co-injected H2S.
