Project Summary

To date, little information on the reactivity of the Surat Basin Moolayember Formation to CO2 rich water exists. This project aids the program by understanding the Moolayember Formation mineralogy-chemical composition as well as investigating mineralogy-chemical changes that occur if low pH water was to interact with this material. The methodology consists of geochemical modelling together with mineralogical and geochemical analysis and laboratory batch reactor experiments under simulated in situ conditions. This approach allows comparison of modelled simulations of dissolution/precipitation reactions and water chemistry with laboratory measurements from experiments.
