Study Compares Underground Hydrogen Storage Sites

24 April 2023
Several options exist for large-scale hydrogen underground storage: lined caverns, salt domes, saline aquifers, and depleted oil/gas reservoirs. In this paper, a commercial reservoir simulator was used to model cyclic injection/withdrawal from saline aquifers and depleted oil/gas reservoirs. The results revealed the need to contain the stored volume with an integrated approach to site selection, well locations, and operation.
