Digital core analysis: Improved connectivity and permeability characterization of thin sandstone layers in heterolithic rocks

Hasnan, Hijaz Kamal; Sheppard, Adrian; Hassan, Meor Hakif Amir; Knackstedt, Mark; Abdullah, Wan Hasiah


Heterolithic thin beds reservoirs contain significant amounts of hydrocarbons. We characterized the reservoir properties (sandstone connectivity, continuity and permeability) of sandstone layers in heterolithic rocks using three-dimensional imaging and analysis of heterolithic core plugs and mini plugs. The high-resolution three-dimensional models of the samples are smaller than a typical reservoir model grid block and similar the millimetre-to-centimetre beddings in heterolithic rocks. We find...[Show more]
