Experimental Verification of Effect of Size on Drainage Capillary Pressure Computed from Digitized Tomographic Images

Olafuyi, A.O.; Sheppard, Adrian; Arns, Christoph; Sok, Robert; Cinar, Yildiray; Knackstedt, Mark; Pinczewski, Wolf Val


This paper presents comparisons between drainage capillary pressure curves computed directly from 3D micro-tomographic images (micro-CT) and laboratory measurements conducted on the same core samples. It is now possible to calculate a wide range of petrophysical and transport properties directly from micro-CT images or from equivalent network models extracted from these images. Capillary pressure is sensitive to rock microstructure and the comparisons presented are the first direct validation...[Show more]
