In this document, CO2 injection risks are assessed using Department of Energy National Risk Assessment Partnership (NRAP) tools. We obtain the range and distribution of the reservoir and the seal properties from detailed geological and numerical models and use the Monte Carlo approach offered by NRAP for assessing the CO2 storage risks. This document describes each tool and presents corresponding results. The tools used in this assessment are the reservoir evaluation (REV), seal evaluation (NSealR), storage capacity evaluation (NETL CO2 SCREEN), Reduced Order Model Generator (RROM), NRAP integrated assessment model (NRAP-IAM-CS), and well leakage analysis (WLAT) tools.
