Title
(EN) STORING HAZARDOUS MATERIAL IN A SUBTERRANEAN FORMATION
(FR) STOCKAGE DE MATIÈRES DANGEREUSES DANS UNE FORMATION SOUTERRAINE
Abstract
(EN) A hazardous material storage bank includes a wellbore extending into the Earth and including an entry at least proximate a terranean surface, the wellbore including a substantially vertical portion, a transition portion, and a substantially horizontal portion; a storage area coupled to the substantially horizontal portion of the well bore, the storage area within or below a shale formation, the storage area vertically isolated, by the shale formation, from a subterranean zone that includes mobile water; a storage container positioned in the storage area, the storage container sized to fit from the wellbore entry through the substantially vertical, the transition, and the substantially horizontal portions of the wellbore, and into the storage area, the storage container including an inner cavity sized enclose hazardous material; and a seal positioned in the wellbore, the seal isolating the storage portion of the wellbore from the entry of the wellbore.
(FR) Un banc de stockage de matières dangereuses comprend un puits de forage s'étendant dans le sol et comprenant une entrée au moins à proximité d'une surface terrestre, le puits de forage comprenant une partie sensiblement verticale, une partie de transition et une partie sensiblement horizontale; une zone de stockage couplée à la partie sensiblement horizontale du puits de forage, la zone de stockage étant à l'intérieur ou en dessous d'une formation de schiste, la zone de stockage étant isolée verticalement par la formation de schiste d'une zone souterraine qui comprend l'eau en mouvement; un récipient de stockage positionné dans la zone de stockage, le récipient de stockage étant dimensionné pour s'ajuster depuis l'entrée du puits de forage dans les parties sensiblement verticale, de transition et sensiblement horizontales du puits de forage, et dans la zone de stockage, le récipient de stockage comprenant une cavité interne dimensionnée pour contenir des matières dangereuses; et un joint d'étanchéité positionné dans le puits de forage, lequel joint isole la partie de stockage du puits de forage par rapport à l'entrée du puits de forage.
