Enhancing residual trapping of supercritical CO2 via cyclic injections

Herring, Anna; Andersson, Linnea; Wildenschild, Dorthe


We utilize synchrotron X-ray tomographic imaging to investigate the pore-scale characteristics and residual trapping of supercritical CO2 (scCO2) over the course of multiple drainage-imbibition (D-I) cycles in Bentheimer sandstone cores. Capillary pressure measurements are paired with X-ray image-derived saturation and connectivity metrics which describe the extent of drainage and subsequent residual (end of imbibition) scCO2 trapping. For the first D-I cycle, residual scCO2 trapping is...[Show more]
