Methane and CO2 Adsorption Capacities of Kerogen in the Eagle Ford Shale from Molecular Simulation

Methane and CO2 Adsorption Capacities of Kerogen in the Eagle Ford Shale from Molecular Simulation

Over the past decade, the United States has become a world leader in natural gas production, thanks in part to a large-fold increase in recovery from unconventional resources, i.e., shale rock and tight oil reservoirs. In an attempt to help mitigate climate change, these depleted formations are being considered for their long-term CO2 storage potential. Because of the variability in mineral and structural composition from one formation to the next (even within the same region), it is imperative to understand the adsorption behavior of CH4 and CO2 in the context of specific conditions and pore surface chemistry, i.e., relative total organic content (TOC), clay, and surface functionality.
