Fines migration is considered one of the mechanisms of permeability alteration associated with water injection in aquifers and oil reservoirs. However, there has been limited direct evidence of fines migration. This paper presents conclusive evidence for the migration and capture of fines, obtained from experiments utilising 3D micro-CT imaging. A single-phase flooding experiment was performed on a Berea sandstone core plug. First, a micro-CT image of the dry core plug was taken before...[Show more]
