Modeling reactive multi-component multi-phase flow for Geological Carbon Sequestration (GCS) with Matlab.


We present a reactive multi-component multi-phase flow program for simulating Geological Carbon Sequestration (GCS), an approach that reduces carbon emissions by storing in deep subsurface formations. The program, called MRST_CO2, is implemented in the library Matlab Reservoir Simulation Toolbox (MRST). It can simulate multi-phase flow and transport of species undergoing chemical reactions and mass exchanges among gas, liquid and solid phases. Equations for flow, mass transport and chemical reactions are solved with a sequential iteration approach. The program was tested with a 1D benchmark. It has also been applied to heterogeneous 2D and 3D cases with a structured or unstructured grid.
