In-situ pore-scale imaging and image-based modelling of capillary trapping for geological storage of CO2

Oren, Pal-Eric; Ruspini, Leonardo C.; Saadatfar, Mohammad; Sok, Robert; Knackstedt, Mark; Herring, Anna


We describe an imaging and pore-scale modelling study of capillary trapping in the Paaratte Sandstone formation in the Otway Basin, Australia. Three-dimensional X-ray computed tomography (micro-CT) was used to characterize the pore structure of the reservoir core. We obtain in-situ pore-scale images of the distribution of CO2:brine analogue fluid pairs (octane:brine) within reservoir samples during low capillary number drainage and imbibition flooding experiments. The images were recorded using...[Show more]
