TOTAL AND ITS PARTNERS RELEASE NEXT-GENERATION & OPEN-SOURCE GEOLOGICAL CARBON DIOXIDE STORAGE SIMULATOR
After more than two years of joint research, Total, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Stanford University release GEOSX, an open source simulator for large-scale geological carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. GEOSX was developed using advanced new technologies in high-performance computing and applied mathematics and aims to improve the management and safety of geological CO2 repositories. Its computing performance is unmatched to date. The open-source nature of GEOSX aims to ensure a high level of transparency, sharing and community support to pave the way for the large-scale development of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) technologies.
