Article history: Numerical reservoir models of CO injection in saline formations rely on parameterization of laboratory- Received 20 October 2015 measured pore-scale processes. We performed a parameter sensitivity study and Monte Carlo simulations Received in revised form 11 February 2016 to determine the normalized change in total CO injected using the ﬁnite element heat and mass-transfer Accepted 7 March 2016 code (FEHM) numerical reservoir simulator. Experimentally measured relative permeability parameter Available online 22 March 2016 values were used to generate distribution functions for parameter sampling. The parameter sensitivity study analyzed ﬁve different levels for each of the relative permeability model parameters. All but one of Keywords: the parameters changed the CO injectivity by <10%, less than the geostatistical uncertainty that applies Carbon sequestration to all large subsurface systems due to natural geophysical variability and inherently small sample sizes. Reservoir modeling The exception was the end-point CO relative permeability, k , the maximum attainable effective CO 2 2 Relative permeability r,CO2 permeability during CO invasion, which changed CO injectivity by as much as 80%. Similarly, Monte Sensitivity analysis 2 2 Carlo simulation using 1000 realizations of relative permeability parameters showed no relationship 0 2 between CO injectivity and any of
