This special section presents interpretation, reservoir characterization, modeling, monitoring, and geoengineering of the multidisciplinary aspects of wastewater disposal and CO2 transport in the subsurface. In striving for zero net greenhouse gas emissions, the oil and gas industry needs transformative technology to efficiently produce and use fossil fuels in a safe and responsible manner.

The recent surge of oil and gas production, from unconventional shales and tight to ultra-tight reservoirs, requires the industry to manage huge volumes of water from oilfield operations, including wastewater from fracturing. Industrial wastewater disposal in different subsurface disposal formations across the United States has been...
