PFLOTRAN-OGS-1.8 adds the capability to model temperature effects for CO2 injection into depleted gas fields, and provides several options to simulate production history match, which is needed to reproduce the initial reservoir condition before storage. The new temperature modelling option is made easier to use by a PVT package available with Stratus, which helps to prepare the input to characterise gas mixtures, including their thermal properties.
A few more correlations have also been implemented to improve the characterisation of brine, following requests of OGS users working on CCS saline aquifers projects.
Finally, a number of bugs and convergence issues have been resolved to increase robustness.
