Boris Jammernegg enrolled in the international study course "Petroleum Engineering" with a focus on "Geothermal Engineering" at the Montanuniversität Leoben (Austria). In 2020, he graduated with a MSc-degree.
Since January 2021, Boris Jammernegg has been a doctoral student at the Chair of "Reservoir Engineering" at the Montanuniversität Leoben (group of Prof. Holger Ott). Within his stay in Stuttgart, it is planned to develop a numerical simulator for geological CO2 storage.
A module describing salt precipitation due to supercritical CO2 injection into a saline aquifer is not available to date. Current simulators do not adequately describe the issue. In collaboration with Bernd Flemisch it is planned to achieve realistic predictions by implementing the reaction kinetics or the mass transfer between the saline solution and the injected supercritical CO2.
