Kongsberg Digital receives funding to further develop leading simulation software for Carbon Capture & Storage

Together with Computer Modelling Group (CMG), Kongsberg Digital has received funding from the CLIMIT-Demo Program to further develop leading simulation software for CO2 injection into depleted oil & gas reservoirs and saline aquifers. This funding is in addition to that already secured by a number of Energy Operators.


With the combination of Kongsberg Digital's advanced transient multiphase flow simulator (LedaFlow®) and CMG's reservoir simulator (GEM), the project GELECO2 aims to develop an intuitive controller program that integrates and manages the interaction between the currently separated well and reservoir systems. 

In addition, there will be fundamental improvements made to LedaFlow® and GEM for CO2 simulation, which means the end result will be an accurate integrated simulation tool for CO2 injection simulations. 

Two-year joint project set to be a “game-changer for CCS

The two-year joint industry project is supported and funded by key Energy Operators and now Gassnova by means of the CLIMIT-Demo Program, Norway’s national program for the research, development, and demonstration of CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) technology. 

“We are extremely proud to have received this additional funding from CLIMIT which is testament to the importance of this Joint Industry Project,” remarked Shane McArdle, SVP of Digital Energy at Kongsberg Digital. 

“This project will be key for the success of future CCS projects, as it is critical for companies to model CO2 injection in an integrated manner, not with isolated well and reservoir models. Net Zero is a focus area for Kongsberg Digital and developing this software will be a game-changer within CCS.”
