Abstract

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) geosequestration represents one of the most promising options for reducing atmospheric emissions of CO2. Caprock integrity - ascertained based on the petrophysical and geomechanical properties of caprock - is vital to ensure safe and sustainable storage of CO2 (Liu et al., 2020). Shale and carbonate rocks are typical caprock for CO2 geological storage, but their failure behaviours have not been fully understood due to their severe heterogeneity and anisotropy (Liu et al., 2020). It is therefore vital to apply machine learning techniques in order to understand caprock behaviour under several conditions. No other study so far has focused on caprock integrity using machine learning to select the best depleted petroleum reservoirs for CO2 storage, based on caprock mechanical and petrophysical properties. The aim of this research is to evaluate caprock integrity under cyclic stress loadings based on variation in pressure and CO2 injection temperature.
