Since the industrial revolution, human society has emitted a huge amount of CO2 to the atmosphere through processes such as fossil fuel usage and concrete production. This amount of CO2 has exceeded the intake capacity of the planet.
This unbalanced CO2 has gradually created severe environmental and societal problems. The average temperature of the earth near surface atmosphere has increased by 0.74ºC from 1906 to 2005 and the increase is becoming more rapid.
The aim of the project is to develop a CO2 injection model which will take into account the thermo-hydro-mechanical coupling effect on the wellbore stability caused by intermittent injection of CO2 and the expansion of CO2 inside the wellbore.
