|Olivier Girou, Ph. D. student (Université Laval – Département de géologie et de génie géologique)
Olivier Girou is interested in the potential risks associated with the geological storage of CO2 in the saline aquifers of the St. Lawrence Lowlands. His research aims to quantify the effects of overpressures caused by CO2 injections at the sedimentary basin scale. Through modelling, he strives to delineate pressure build-up and brine migration toward surficial freshwater aquifers.
|Maher Nasr, master’s student (INRS-ETE)
Maher Nasr is interested in estimating the geothermal potential of the St. Lawrence Lowlands sedimentary basin for electricity production. Thermal conductivity and capacity of geological units, regional geothermal gradient and terrestrial heat flow are required for this evaluation. Petrophysical characterisation, log and core analyses, natural radioactivity measurements and 3D modeling are the tools that will be used to locate geothermal anomalies in the basin. The numerical evaluation of thermal energy stored in the basin is a primary objective of Maher Nasr.
|Linda Armelle Nzumotcha Tchoumkam, Ph. D. student (INRS-ETE)
Linda Armelle Nzumotcha Tchoumkam is working on imaging deep saline aquifers using electromagnetic methods. Her research specifically focuses on quantifying the resolution limits of the magnetotelluric method for delineating aquifers in the poorly known geoelectric context of the St. Lawrence Lowlands. The benefit will be better assessments of regional-scale storage potential.
|Lorenzo Perozzi, Ph. D. student (INRS-ETE)
Lorenzo Perozzi is studying seismic properties, namely compressional (P) and shear (S) wave velocity and attenuation as a function of CO2 saturation in reservoir rocks of the St. Lawrence Lowlands. He is also interested in characterizing the reservoir and subsequently monitoring the injection using high-resolution seismic methods such as VSP and cross-borehole tomography.
