Short summary
Understanding the natural generation of CO2 in sedimentary basins is key to optimizing exploitation of natural resources and exploring feasibility of carbon capture and storage. We present a novel modeling approach to estimate the probability of CO2 generation caused by geochemical reactions at high temperatures and pressure in realistic sedimentary basins. Our model allows estimation of the most probable CO2 source depth and generation rate as a function of the composition of the source rock.
