Injection conditions of CO2 at the wellhead may play a major role on the flow behavior through the wellbore. The density and the injection rate reached at the bottomhole are key factors affecting the performance and efficiency of CO2 geological storage. In this work, a model of non-isothermal flow of CO2 in injection wells is developed using COMSOL Multiphysics® software and used to assess different injection strategies that are relevant for CO2 geological storage.
