Subsurface: Exascale Subsurface Simulator of Coupled Flow, Transport, Reactions, and Mechanics

Principal Investigator: Carl Steefel, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

The Subsurface project is exploring the safe and efficient use of the subsurface for geologic CO2 sequestration, petroleum extraction, geothermal energy, and nuclear waste isolation. It aims to predict reservoir-scale behavior as affected by the long-term integrity of hundreds of deep wells that penetrate the subsurface for resource use.
