The prediction of hydrocarbon recovery is related to both the detailed pore scale structure of core material and fluid interfacial properties. An increased understanding of displacement efficiencies and overall recoveries requires an ability to characterize the pore structure of reservoir core in 3D and to observe fluid distributions at the pore scale. Micro-CT imaging is capable of acquiring 3D images of the pore structure of sedimentary rock with resolutions down to the micron scale. This...[Show more]
