Course Description

Mach 29 and 30, 2023 - 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM MST (GMT-6)

With the recent increase of global demand for renewable energies, there are different aspects that need to be investigated. The seasonal fluctuations in renewable energy resources along with the seasonal consumption needs make the storage of any renewable resource energy critical. Hydrogen seems to be an appropriate carrier for storing the energy generated by renewable resources. It could potentially be stored in various types of underground reservoirs such as aquifers, depleted gas reservoirs and depleted oil reservoirs. However, every new field requires thorough investigation before any real-world applications.

This course elaborates on the outstanding capabilities of the CMG GEM software for modelling underground hydrogen storage in aquifers, depleted gas reservoirs and depleted oil reservoirs. The course contains a step-by-step procedure for modelling each of these storage processes. The attendees use WinProp to build basic PVT models for hydrogen storage. They then construct the geological and dynamic model for the process in the target reservoir using Builder. They also introduce different phenomena that are involved in the H2 storage process into the models (such as solubility, diffusivity, etc.). Finally, they investigate the effects the physics involved has on the results.

Razieh is a Reservoir Simulation Engineer at CMG with more than two years of experience providing technical support for CMG’s clients. She taught several courses at CMG including "Introduction to CMG's modelling workflows", "Introduction to Thermal EOR Modelling", "Modelling Unconventional Reservoirs", and "CMOST for Conventional and Tight Reservoirs". Razieh is working towards her Ph.D. in Petroleum Engineering at the University of Calgary. For her thesis, she developed a new method to directly measure absolute adsorption isotherms in shale reservoirs. Razieh holds a master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Regina. Her M.Sc. thesis is on Improving heavy oil reservoirs recovery by ASP flooding.
