Cheyenne “Super-Computer” Hard At Work
By Mick Birge posted Feb 13, 2013 at 9:25AM
A University of Wyoming professor is using the state’s new supercomputer to develop models for capturing and storing carbon dioxide in deep underground reservoirs.
Geologist Ye Zhang (Yee Zhong) says the models can reduce the cost of such projects by determining how to store carbon dioxide more efficiently.
Zhang will use the National Center for Atmospheic Research-Wyoming Supercomputing Center in Cheyenne (pictured) to conduct her research.
She says the improved computer models will be useful in making better drilling and reservoir management decisions.
