crcCARE Webinar - NAPL Flow Mechanics: Wells vs. Reality Investigation

Hear from Jonas Garcia-Rincon, an expert in subsurface exploration, serves as the Direct Sensing Manager at Legion Drilling, spearheading their cutting-edge MiHPT, LIF-UVOST, and CPT systems.

Understanding subsurface non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) behaviour is paramount in sites contaminated with organic substances such as petroleum hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents.

In this webinar, Jonas Garcia-Rincon will explore practical implications of multiphase flow mechanics in field-scale NAPL distribution, conventional site investigation, high-resolution site characterisation, and in-situ remediation.

Jonas will discuss topics like the importance of capillary pressure and wettability on NAPL behaviour, the influence of water table fluctuations on monitoring well observations and NAPL transmissivity, the existing options to detect and delineate immobile NAPL mass, and how NAPL mass recovery options may (or may not) reduce downgradient mass fluxes. We will also see how some typical challenges encountered by practitioners may be addressed by using adaptive site investigation strategies and targeted injection of remedial amendments.

Join us on Tuesday, June 25, 2024 at 1:30 PM AEST (Sydney Time) for discussion on the fascinating topic of NAPL flow mechanics. Discover the differences between theoretical well models and real-world investigations, and gain valuable insights into managing NAPL contamination.

This event will be held online, so you can participate from the comfort of your own home or office. Don't miss this opportunity to expand your knowledge and connect with experts in the field.
