Natural Gas & Power-to-Gas Storages
Underground gas storages are often built in abandoned oil or gas fields or in artificial caverns in salt domes. Old reservoirs need to be reconfigured to allow the fast injection and extraction of gas. With our knowledge and experience on reservoir characterization, Seismic and Borehole Data Interpretation, NiMBUC Geoscience can help and consult clients to find and construct new natural gas and P2G underground storages and expand existing facilities.

Carbon Capture and Storage
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) describes sequestration and storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) in subsurface formations. The exploration and appraisal of such formations is a field, in which the team of NiMBUC Geoscience can bring in our reservoir knowledge.
To explore and appraise old and new reservoirs for CCS existing data need to be re-analyzed and new data need to be acquired. With our knowledge and capabilities NiMBUC Geoscience can support the design and optimization of CO2 underground storage facilities. We can re-interpret 2D and 3D Seismic data, describe the internal reservoir architecture by Borehole Image Interpretation, use Geomechanical Analyses to evaluate the stability of the reservoir and use old and new Well Logs to produce crucial parameters for reservoir engineering.
Nuclear Waste Storage
Underground Storages for Nuclear Waste must encapsulate the hazardous material for hundreds of thousands to millions of years to come. Before the decision on the site for such a project is taken, a number of precise data needs to be acquired to evaluate the site’s suitability. NiMBUC Geoscience uses its experience and knowledge to help with the geoscientific evaluation of the subsurface.
To model and to construct a storage site that meets the required criteria, one needs a comprehensive and profound knowledge of the geological history and the as-is status of the subsurface.
NiMBUC Geoscience is currently involved in the analysis and interpretation of borehole data that are produced for the Swiss Nuclear Waste Storage site by the National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste (Nagra). We apply our knowledge in borehole image analysis to answer the specific questions has and challenges of a nuclear waste storage. In cooperation with our client and other project stakeholders we have developed and implemented a workflow that allows us to deliver high-profile results specifically tailored to the needs of the project members.
The borehole image analyses are the base from which other geological interpretations are possible. More information on our workflow and on the development of a tool for better estimation of correct mud weight can be found here or contact us directly firstname.lastname@example.org
