Nested FNO for CO2 storage modeling

Nested FNO is a machine learning framework that provides unprecedented high-resolution high-fidelity 3D spatial-temporal predictions of CO2 gas saturation plume and pressure buildup. Nested FNO can handle a wide range of realistic reservoir and operational parameters and speeds up predictions nearly 700,000 times compared to state-of-the-art numerical simulators!


Prediction Accuracy

Nested FNO provides accurate gas saturation and pressure buildup prediction over 30 years of injection. The average gas saturation plume error is 1.8% and average pressure buildup error is 0.5%.
