Tomography, scanning electron microscopy techniques and image analysis of coal for natural gas recovery
Flow paths including porosity and fracture networks in reservoirs are essential for oil and gas recovery. Core analysis cannot reliably reflect reservoir quality if the pore network is highly heterogeneous. In coal cores, the matrix can be so fractured, heterogeneous or complex that experiments may require the support of modelling, which itself requires detailed 3D images and computational analysis of the pore space. One prime example is coal bed methane, which is becoming increasingly...[Show more]
