The service has been updated to include a detailed analysis of saline aquifer potential offshore Galveston, Texas.
The new analysis integrates interpretation of more than 550 wells from TGS’ well log database with results from its Phase 48 2D and Texas Renaissance 3D seismic datasets. According to the company, hundreds of meters of good-quality reservoirs are present at Miocene level above smaller deep gas accumulations located along the Galveston coast.
Carbon AXIOM is designed to provide interactive vertical and horizontal differentiation of CO2 storage volumetrics and injectivity for each stratigraphic interval based on the aquifer’s reservoir characteristics.
The service determines reservoir properties required for assessing CO2 storage potential, including reservoir thickness, porosity, temperature and pressure.
It also allows for assessment of depleted oil and gas reservoirs for CCUS purposes along the Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coast regions.
