Methods And Models For Predicting The Geochemical Fate Of Deepwellinjected Wastes

20.6.1 Basic Approaches to Geochemical Modeling

The geochemical interactions possible between an injected waste and the reservoir rock and its associated fluids can be quite complex. Thus a combination of computer modeling, laboratory experimentation, and field observation will inevitably be necessary to satisfy current regulatory requirements for a geochemical no-migration deep-well injection. This section covers the computer methods and models available for predicting geochemical fate.

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)119 has developed a standard protocol for evaluating environmental chemical-fate models, along with the definition of basic modeling terms, shown in Table 20.17. Predicting fate requires natural phenomena to be described mathematically.
