Observations of nonwetting phase snap-off during drainage
We study quasi-static drainage displacement experiments in Bentheimer sandstone micro-cores using X-ray computed microtomography. Two nonwetting fluids, air and n-decane, are investigated, under high and low flow rate conditions. Experimental conditions consider viscosity ratios that vary by a factor of 40, and capillary numbers that range five orders of magnitude; but all experiments investigated are conducted under nominally capillary-dominated conditions, indicating that drainage...[Show more]
