We propose a new reservoir simulator MUFITS for thermal compositional simulations of underground CO2storage. We test MUFITS against a benchmarking problem of CO2storage which is consistent with reservoir conditions in the Johansen formation. We also conduct a series of simulations of CO2injection using a real-scale geological model of the Johansen formation. We evaluate an optimized location of the injection well for a more complete structural trapping and reduction of potential CO2leakage out of the formation. The input data for MUFITS, related to the simulations presented in this work, can be downloaded at the simulator website. © 2013 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
