Abstract

Oil and gas wells can suffer integrity failure resulting in the release of fugitive gas, formed primarily of methane, into the subsurface and atmosphere. Factors affecting fugitive gas migration in the subsurface, and in particular within and between shallower units intersected by energy wells (i.e.
