CO2 Storage in a Geologic Formation
Application ID: 102791
This example simulates the underground storage of CO2 in a part of the Johansen formation off the coast of Norway. The CO2 is injected using an injection well at a rate of 15 kg/s over a period of 25 years, after which the well is closed. The model is used to compute the spreading of CO2 over the simulation domain during the injection phase and during the 25 years directly following the shut down of the injection well.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Subsurface Flow Module and
- either the Battery Design Module, Chemical Reaction Engineering Module, Fuel Cell & Electrolyzer Module, or Liquid & Gas Properties Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
