Task 1 - Long-term wellbore and seal integrity

LANL is concluding a multi-year experimental and computational effort in long-term wellbore and seal integrity. This task will work to quantify transport behavior of wellbore and seal materials as impacted by geomechanical and geochemical processes by conducting experiments using a triaxial core-flood system.
