With many years of experience in academia, we are experts in modeling geological formation processes on various scales.
We have strong expertise in modeling large-scale geodynamic processes. Our models help to understand complex feedback mechanisms and identify key properties to explain geophysical observations.
Our models can handle complex geometries and provide a robust geomechanical feedback given the uncertain rock properties.
Our thermomechanical modeling tools are robust and fast. We combine them with statistical modeling to quantify uncertainties of our simulation results
Our tools are highly scalable and problems of any size can be processed with the help of high-performance computers.
Natural data and model predictions are not always easy to process and analyze. Many parameters and components can be involved that span a high-dimensional space.
Salt rock formations serve as host rocks for salt solution mining, caverns, and other underground storages. They are an important host rock for storing strategic oil and gas reserves, compressed air, and hydrogen and thus an essential part of the energy transition. Currently, salt formations are considered as host rocks for the storage of radioactive waste in many countries.
We are a member of the cavern closure consortium (CCC). Together with our partners from engineering and micro structure analysis, we consult clients from salt solution mining industry.
