CO2 capture and geological storage is seen as the most effective
technology to rapidly reduce the emission of greenhouse gases into
the atmosphere. Up until now and before proceeding to an industrial
development of this technology, laboratory research has been
conducted for several years and pilot projects have been launched.
So far, these studies have mainly focused on transport and
geochemical issues and few studies have been dedicated to the
geomechanical issues in CO2 storage facilities. The purpose of this
book is to give an overview of the multiphysics processes occurring
in CO2 storage facilities, with particular attention given to
coupled geomechanical problems.The book is divided into three
parts. The first part is dedicated to transport processes and
focuses on the efficiency of the storage complex and the evaluation
of possible leakage paths. The second part deals with issues
related to reservoir injectivity and the presence of fractures and
occurrence of damage. The final part of the book concerns the
serviceability and ageing of the geomaterials whose poromechanical
properties may be altered by contact with the injected reactive
