In this study, we have investigated the effect of various organic acids (hexanoic, lauric, stearic, and lignoceric acid) and nanoparticles (silica and alumina) on various geo-storage formations (sandstone, carbonate, and cap-rock) by conducting contact angle measurements at various physio-thermal conditions. The result showed that geo-storage minerals became super-hydrophobic in the presence of organic acids, thus, less CO2 trapping capacity and nano-fluids have significantly turned organic-aged geo-storage minerals to intermediate-wet, thus, increased CO2 trapping capacity.

Effect of wettability heterogeneity and reservoir temperature on CO2 storage efficiency in deep saline aquifersAl-Khdheeawi, E.; Vialle, Stephanie; Barifcani, Ahmed; Sarmadivaleh, Mohammad; Iglauer, Stefan (2018)Reservoir heterogeneity at various length scales is a well-established fact. This includes reservoir wettability - a key factor influencing CO 2 geo-storage efficiency and containment security - which changes with depth, ...
