Stability and creep of gas caverns in rocksalt

Project Details

Description

DONG A/S and IGG/DTU have initiated an industrial PhD-project for Mikkel Kristian Dahl on developing robust models for creep and stability modelling og gas caverns in rocksalt. The study involves advanced laboratory testing of creep under actual field stress and temperature conditions. During the project period of 3 years MKD should develop the necessary software to be used on DONG's EDP-facilities for modelling of gas caverns under operational conditions. A verification is done based on measurements of cavern deformations under more than 10 years operation. It is the major research and development goal to establish a Danish expertise in this field of gas storage.
