INFAMI Report Summary

Project ID: ENK6-CT-2000-00072
Funded under: FP5-EESD
Country: Norway

Infami methodologies

New methods and procedures for assessing fault seal effects on hydrocarbon migration and trapping have been defined. Methods for accurately incorporating the effects of fault seal into migration models have been defined. These methods and related software implementation provide a workflow for both predicting hydrocarbon distributions and conducting sensitivity analyses on estimated fault seal capacities and mapped fault structure.

Some of the methods employed have been calibrated in case studies within the project, while others have been documented as possible methods or procedures in the report documentation.

It is expected that scientific results from the project have general interest outside of the case study areas and will be presented at several conferences in the future.
