  • Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science Seminar - Distinguished Lecture Series

    Tue, Sep 24, 2019 @ 04:00 AM - 05:20 PM

    Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Joachim Moortgat, The Ohio State University

    Talk Title: Numerical Modeling of Complex Transport Processes in CO2-EOR and Carbon Sequestration

    Abstract: Carbon dioxide (CO2) injection into geological formations is used both as a means of mitigating global warming by storing anthropogenic CO2 in saline aquifers, and for purely economic reasons in enhanced oil recovery (EOR). CO2 is a peculiar fluid: At typical reservoir conditions, it often behaves as a supercritical liquid and can be denser that the oil-in-place. And, unlike other gasses, when CO2 dissolves in brine and many types of oil, it increases the local density, which can lead to gravitational instabilities. In this lecture, I will discuss these, and other interesting physical processes related to CO2 injection, as well as the computational challenges in modeling flow and transport in heterogeneous and fractured reservoirs.

    Biography: Joachim Moortgat is an Associate Professor in the School of Earth Sciences, Ohio State University. His research interests lie in the theory and advanced numerical modeling of compositional multiphase flow in subsurface fractured porous media, with a focus on problems that exhibit complex phase behavior (such as asphaltene precipitation, near-critical gas-oil mixtures, gas condensates, etc.). Moortgat holds MS degrees in theoretical physics and astrophysics, both from Utrecht University, and a PhD in astrophysics from the Radboud University, The Netherlands. Moortgat was the recipient of the 2014 SPE Cedric K. Ferguson Meal awarded by the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
