Test Case for Comparative Modelling of CO2 Injection, Migration and Possible Leakage - Wabamun Lake Area, Alberta, Canada

Geological storage of CO2 in deep saline aquifers is an option for significantly reducing emissions into the atmosphere. In November 2005, participants at a Workshop on Geological Storage of CO2 at Princeton University agreed on the need for a common test problem to assess various models for simulating the fate of CO2 injected into the subsurface. The Alberta Geological Survey offered to make available the data for the Wabamun Lake area in Alberta, Canada, that were assembled for the purpose of developing a comprehensive model for studying CO2 geological storage.

Part of the project was presented at the CO2SC conference in Berkeley, California in March 2006.
