Micro-CT and Wettability Analysis of Oil Recovery from Sand Packs and the Effect of Waterflood Salinity and Kaolinite

Lebedeva, Evgenia; Fogden, Andrew


An image-based approach was developed by combining microtomography with electron microscopy and contact angle goniometry to determine the pore-scale distribution of crude oil in plugs after waterflooding and shed light on the molecularscale mechanisms responsible. The approach was applied to a model rock comprising a pack of quartz sand grains without or with a preapplied lining of kaolinite, imaged prior to and after capillary-driven oil recovery by flooding with a model brine of high or low...[Show more]
