Simulation of field-scale CO2 sequestration (which is defined as the capture, separation and long-term storage of CO2 for environmental purposes) has gained significant importance in recent times. Here we discuss mathematical and computational formulations for describing reservoir characterization and evaluation of long term CO2 storage in saline aquifers as well as current computational capabilities and challenges.
