Effective application of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Capture and Storage (CCS) technology to ensure efficient climate change abatement needs precise estimation of storage reservoir properties, CO2 storage capacity and possible risks due to injection of CO2 in supercritical state into the subsurface geological structure. To monitor behaviour of CO2 plume in the deep geological trap a number of modelling routines should be applied.

The purpose of the modelling presented here is integration with (1) modelling of CO2 plume migration within the geological storage site, (2) geochemical, mineralogical and petrophysical changes of the reservoir and cap rocks after CO2 like alteration experiment, (3) fluid flow modelling, and (4) seismic numerical models supporting CO2 plume monitoring.
