Title: Leakage detection using smart field technology

Abstract

Various examples are provided for gas leakage detection from geologic storage sites. In one example, a system for detection of gas leakage from a geologic storage site includes permanent down-hole gauges (PDGs) disposed at different depths within a well and an evaluation system that can determine a three-dimensional (3D) location of the gas leakage from the geologic storage site and a leakage indicator. The 3D location and leakage indicator can be determined using pressure data provided by the PDGs. The geologic storage site can store, e.g., CO2, natural gas or other type of gas. In another example, a method for detecting gas leakage from a geologic storage site includes receiving pressure data provided by PDGs disposed within one or more wells associated with the geologic storage site, determining key performance indicators using the pressure data and determining a 3D location and a leakage indicator using the key performance indicators.
