CCS CAPACITY (PART 1)

In this video, we describe how TKRISK can be used to quantify the risk associated with carbon sequestration in geologic formations. The evaluation of underground storage capacity is essential to addressing liability questions such as the purchase of the mineral rights (or pore space) under the land area that may be impacted by sequestration activities.

We use the following reference publication: "Reservoir characterization and lithostratigraphic division of the Mount Simon Sandstone (Cambrian): Implications for estimations of geologic sequestration storage capacity" by Cristian R. Medina and John A. Rupp. The paper describes the calculation of such capacity using geological, petrophysical and fluid properties. We model the storage capacity (defined as an explicit formula in the paper) using TKRISK's deterministic node.

This example shows how one can build and calibrate a model based on both data and expert knowledge while propagating uncertainty through the nodes of the PGM. This demonstrates the versatility of Bayesian network to model risk for a variety of engineering applications.
