One way to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere for the mitigation of climate change is to capture the CO2 and inject it into geological formations. The most important public concern about carbon capture and storage (CCS) is whether stored CO2 will leak into groundwater sources and finally into the atmosphere. To prevent the leakage, the possible leakage paths and the mechanisms triggering the paths must be examined and identified. It is known that the leakage paths can be due to CO2 - rock interaction and CO2 - well interaction.
